Meadows and grasslands
Our grassland reserves are vital sanctuaries for nesting birds such as skylarks and waders. The wild calls and display flights of lapwings, curlews, snipe and redshanks are a star spring attraction and colourful displays of wildflowers bloom in summer.
These tips will help you to make the most of your visit:
- Visit in spring for birdsong and the amazing display flights of wading birds
- Look down - grassland and wet meadows are rich in wildflowers in spring and summer
- Grassland is great for insects too - look for butterflies, bees and all kinds of fascinating creatures
