Meadow (10.3 acres)

The base rich grasslands at Lettoch have been over-grazed by sheep and deer in previous years but the introduction of electric fencing in April 2021 meant we could eliminate sheep which led to significant changes and the following species were recorded: Common rock-rose (see picture), wild thyme, quaking grass, bistort, eyebrights, harebell, lady’s bedstraw, stichwort, clovers, yarrow and self-heal.

There are some small areas of wetland flush on the north-western boundary which support a diverse range of species including common spotted orchid, heath fragrant orchid, ragged robin, devil’s bit scabious, bog asphodel, cross-leaved heath and sharp flowered rush.
