Following their absence last year we are hoping that cattle will once again join the ponies on the common for the next few months, possibly arriving in April or May. Cattle will compliment the conservation grazing carried out by our ponies, with the aim of maintaining a diverse sward of heathland vegetation and preventing the more vigorous plant species from dominating.
As always, please observe the following rules:
– Do not attempt to touch or feed the animals
– Dogs should be kept under close control at all times
Thank you for your cooperation.
The next conservation task will take place on Saturday 11th April, meeting at 10am in Litcham Common car park. As always, new volunteers will be welcome.Please telephone Tim Angell on 01328 700045 for more information.
