Queen Ethelburga's at night

Queen Ethelburga's is set in 200 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside. We are lucky to be surrounded by wonderful rolling agricultural fields and pupils and staff can often spot curious wildlife around the Estate. Overhead you can often see a falcon, buzzard and even a heron – attracted by the Koi Carp in the historical Stew Pond (so named because the monks who used to live here occasionally had to fish out a fish for supper from the pond when stocks ran low). There are deer on the perimeters, rabbits and foxes too. But at night the grounds often come alive with the sounds of wildlife waking up and foraging for food and grubs. Thankfully away from the playing fields, we get moles waking up and coming out to explore the land. We have recently put up owl boxes to house our nocturnal winged creatures. And you will sometimes spot a dormouse trying to cross a path. Take a look at the splendour of our site at dusk and night – knowing that while the wildlife sneak around, our boarders are well and truly tucked up for a good night's sleep!
