Volunteer task – Tyler Hill LNR = meadow mowing.

14th September 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

We visit this lovely secluded spot to give the meadow its annual cut.

The meadow is one of the few remaining unimproved neutral grasslands in Kent. In summer the grassland supports colourful wild flowers such as St John’s wort and black knapweed. Although the grassland is important the surrounding scrub and woodland also provides undisturbed habitat for birds. Eleven species of butterfly have been recorded on the site as have reptiles such as slow-worms and common lizards which shows that even small sites support a wealth of wildlife.

Although small in size, it is always a delight to visit .
