This is an unique opportunity to learn about the cattle that is introduced on the Moor and how you can help to look after it. John Whitby, the farmer will tell you all about his cattle and it is an opportunity to ask questions about the grazing. The Conservation Officer Grazing, Lonneke Klein-Aarts is present as well to update about the biodiversity of this site and will explain how you can help the farmer checking on his cattle’s welfare. This event is aimed at adults being on the moor on a regular basis (like once a week or more) and can easily be combined for birders and walkers. The meet the farmer event on the same day is suitable for families. The ground is uneven and overgrown, so sturdy shoes and long trousers are recommended.
