Total species seen at this site:


This area constitutes a large grassland area surrounded by mature hedges and trees. Grass paths are regularly mown but the remainder is cut only once a year to encourage wild flowers. There is a copse in the south west corner and scattered trees in the meadow

Wildlife Highlights

The rough grassland attracts many invertebrates and the hedges and trees offer good habitat for birds. Amphibians cross the area to reach the pond in Gynsill Wood and bats have been seen to follow the hedge line
