About the reserve
There are three meadows: an area of very rank grassland and curragh and an area which is a mosaic of managed grassland, rough grassland and curragh. The largest meadow is particularly attractive in late summer when it is blue with devil's bit scabious providing a valuable nectar source for butterflies. Hen harrier, snipe, curlew, sparrowhawk, barn owl and moorhen have been recorded.
Management: Species diversity across the site has increased considerably since a regime of regular cutting and grazing was introduced.
