The cattle’s grazing will restore the meadow, forcing back the coarse and dominant grasses and allowing more invertebrates and lower growing plant species to thrive. Stockers Lake is the first of three meadows in the Colne Valley where cattle will make a return this year as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded project. If you want to get involved in helping to return wildflower meadows to the Colne valley by learning how to survey changes in biodiversity, contact us for volunteering opportunities in your local area. And if you want to receive an invite to the next introduction or a ‘meet the farmer’ day, then please get in touch.
