The RSBP store is located upstairs above Cotswold Outdoor. The store overlooks the Clyst Valley & our farmland, surrounded by wetlands where we have created a fantastic nature reserve for our local wildlife. The saltmarsh and mudflats surrounding the River Clyst are home to an astounding array of waterbirds. We highly recommend picking up a pair of binoculars and taking a look with your own eyes!
We are thrilled to have RSPB here at Darts Farm. The RSPB speaks out for birds and wildlife, tackling the problems that threaten our environment. Nature is amazing - help us keep it that way!
Around the farm and ponds, you'll see flocks of finches, tits, fieldfares, song thrushes, blackbirds and redwings. Watch the wetlands for brent and Canada geese, teals, wigeons, black-tailed godwits, snipe, curlews and lapwings.
An ideal spot, close to Topsham, to watch birds up close, including spring and autumn migrating birds, and winter flocks of waders, ducks and geese feeding and resting, from the comfort of the Lookout hide.
Your membership helps the RSPB save wildlife, protect wild places and connect people with nature.
The RSPB bird identifier lists 408 species of birds found in the UK, including some rare overseas visitors.
Not to worry, RSPB are the largest stockist of binoculars and optics in and around Exeter!
We love seeing your amazing wildlife photography and scenic snaps of the farm.
By now, we’re all familiar with the concept of wild animals being driven to extinction… but what about foods? Whilst the ‘Pig’s Snout’ apple may not pluck at the heartstrings in the same way the White Rhino does, for us the prospect is equally alarming. If we’re not careful, our children will inherit a world where flavour is made in factories and provenance is a thing of the past.
With the seasons changing and the nights drawing in, we're getting excited about all of the amazing flavours that come out at this time of year... nutty, earthy and sweet vegetables, perfectly marbled slow roasting joints, small batch ciders crafted on local orchards; it is the perfect time to make new discoveries with your cooking.
It's the time of year to share world-class treats, amazing drinks and unique gifts with friends, family and loved ones - no matter how far apart.
