About the event
Natural England’s Site Managers will take us off the public access routes to explore the species-rich fen meadows, sedge beds, reedbeds, chalk springs and woodland. We are likely to see some of the site’s specialities, Cambridge Milk-parsley, an assemblage of orchids and perhaps the day-flying, Silver-barred moth. Learn about the careful regime of cutting and grazing (including by the site’s water buffalo) that keep the fen in tip top condition.
