About the reserve

Much of the site was planted with trees in the late 1990’s and a small area is managed for wildflowers.  The remainder of the site is curragh.

Management: The wildflower area is cut in early autumn once the profusion of knapweed has finished flowering and providing nectar for butterflies.
