Our species tips

Our initial project comprised 10 acres just north of Roborough village in north Devon.  Over just a couple of years we have increased species diversity by treating the two fields in different ways.

The Front Field was typical semi-improved, grazing land with Italian rye grass and foxtail grasses predominating.  This area is being been turned into a complex of raised bank hedgerows, ditches and wildflower meadows with occasional small ponds.


The Back Field comprised a much heavier clay, and had ditches bringing in water from above.  This is being transformed into a wetland consisting of pools, scrapes, ditches and meres.

Here are our tips for encouraging specific species:
