NRSF SPRING EVENT (for NRSF members)

Sunday 8th May 2016

 

 

High Wood and Meadow Nature Reserve is a hidden gem of a site.  It is approximately a 10 to 15min walk out to the site with a steep grassy slope down to the site (which unfortunately turns into an uphill slope on the way back!!).

 

The grassland area is mainly acidic with lots of tormentil, sheep's sorrel and heath bedstraw.  The meadow is kept in good condition by the resident flock of North Ronaldsay Sheep – the Exodus Flock!  The flock is made up of about 40 breeding ewes that are rotated around the three compartments of the nature reserve.

 

The woodland is enchanting ancient woodland with cherry trees and a carpet of bluebells.

If there is time before lunch we can also pop into Ramsden Corner Nature Reserve and see some of last year’s ewe lambs.

 

Plan for the day:

10 am meet at parking area – park on grass verge on right at the end of Mantles heath.

The closest post code is for: Farthingstone Golf Course, NN12 8HA

For directions see http://www.wildlifebcn.org/reserves/high-wood-and-meadow

10.30am walk down to High Wood & Meadow Nature Reserve – the Exodus Flock graze this SSSI Nature Reserve all year to maintain it in good condition.  The ewes will have just finished lambing so there should be lots of Ronnie lambs to see!

12pm – walk back to cars

1.30pm – lunch at The Plough Inn, High Street, Everdon, Northamptonshire NN11 3BL
