'Nichoir' garden 2 In the main garden there is a swimming pool, 11metres by 6 metres; and a small lake, with fish, frogs and plenty of other wildlife - a beautiful, quiet spot from which to enjoy the views. There are a number of places to eat outside, including a barbecue area. And there is the boules court, and facilities for badmington and a children's play area. We are particularly interested in providing access to the natural habitat in the garden. So, we are developing some ways in which this can be done a bit differently: by installing night cameras and high-sensitivity sound recording equipment - this enables guests to see recordings of what wildlife was in the garden overnight and also to track wildlife sounds (bats, for example) that otherwise could not be heard.
