The winter flooding has started to recede but the site is still extremely muddy and slippery under foot. Natural England are asking people to stay off the site for now whilst the remainder of the water dries up.
The first Snake’s Head Fritillary shoots were spotted at the beginning of March. We are hoping they will have a good year this year and put on their stunning display in April.
These shoots are very difficult to see at this stage so if you visit please stay on the paths which will be clearly marked when the ground conditions are suitable for walkers, and keep your dog on a lead to avoid damaging these rare plants and disturbing ground nesting birds.
