Project Summary

One of Britain’s top wildlife sites with many rare species of wildflower and insects. Our work will focus on cutting back invasive cotoneaster to restore chalk grassland habitat. This should help butterflies such as the Adonis blue and silver-spotted skipper, and plants such as squinancywort and the clove-scented broomrape.
