Grazing on Hazeley Heath

Four lovely cows can now be seen grazing on Hazeley Heath for the fifth and final year of the Hazeley Heath Grazing Trial. One Irish Moiled ,who is the older lead cow, and three young Belted Galloway's.

Thank you to Miller's Ark for delivering them to us!

Please follow the Countryside Code in this area and keep your dogs under close control, making sure all gates are shut behind you when entering the grazing enclosure.

The cattle will be with us until the end of September hopefully doing a great job of munching the competitive grasses and opening up opportunities for some of the rare heathland flora to grow whilst poaching the ground for some wet loving species. This then provides a great habitat for lots of specialist invertebrates.
