Temporary Closure of the Meadow
The farmer had hoped to be able to mow the grass in the meadows last week but it was too wet. He needs a few dry days so we are now hoping that the grass in the meadows can be cut on Friday, 22nd September. The meadows will then be closed after cutting until baling. You will still be able to walk in the woods.

Bat Walks
Regrettably, both bat walks were cancelled due to the wet weather. There would have been very few bats on the wing because the midges, one of their sources of food, would not have been flying as it is so wet.

Weed-killing
The meadows had their annual weed-killing on Monday 19th June, and have now re-opened.

We are required to undertake weed killing annually under our agreement with Natural England. The purpose is to remove invasive broad-leaved weeds such as thistle, dock, burdock, ragwort and nettles to allow the grass and wild flowers to flourish.
