Sheep grazing

154 sheep (North Country Mules) were delivered to our stewardship grassland yesterday.  The fields have been grazed since 2013 and are managed to comply with our higher level and entry level stewardship agreements.  The aim is to develop species rich dry acid grassland and there is already a marked increase in the number of wild flowers present and and a larger percentage of fine grasses.
The grassland is situated to the north of the main course beyond the woodland.
