Since 2007, Vine House Farm's donations have raised an amazing £1,250,000 for Wildlife Trusts

The Wildlife Trusts have been in partnership with conservation award-winning Vine House Farm Bird foods since 2007 because their business is committed to protecting and enabling the environment they work in to thrive.

Passionate conservationists, Vine House Farm are leading the way in wildlife-friendly farming - growing, packaging and dispatching the vast majority of bird seed they sell from their Lincolnshire farm, ensuring their family-run business always operates with the environment in mind.

Spectacular Wildlife Photos Available from Vine House Farm

Nicholas Watts, MBE owner of conservation award-winning Vine House Farm, is making his entire wildlife photography library freely available online, with all images totally royalty-free. Over 10,000 images will be made available throughout 2018, with a release scheduled for every month.

Nicholas Watts said: “The main reason I wanted my collection of photographs to be freely available to anyone, is that it’s a further practical way I can raise awareness of the importance of farming with wildlife and the environment in mind, plus more specifically the need for action to reverse the trend of declining songbird numbers.”

The Wildlife Trusts have recently celebrated a 10-year strong relationship with Vine House Farm, who have raised over £1,250,000 to support wildlife conservation across the country, and inspire people to experience wildlife first-hand. This incredible selection of bird and wildlife photographs will hopefully provide further inspiration.

Nicholas’s photography collection highlights birds, with many of the shots taken at Vine House Farm where he’s worked tirelessly for many decades to reverse the trend of farmland bird decline. This work has involved a very wide range of measures, which include hedgerow planting, creation of numerous ponds, wild flower meadows, sympathetic management of drainage dykes, generous field margins to allow seed-rich weeds to grow, and old farm buildings restored for barn owls to nest in.

He said “I’ve always taken a very hands-on approach to running my farm and aiming to make a positive difference to the wildlife that we share the land with. This means that much of my time is out in the fields rather than in an office, so taking a camera with me has always seemed the obvious thing to do. I also hope my work will inspire more people – especially the younger generation – to take up nature photography”.
