Field visit to Queendown Warren

This site is always popular with KFC members, due to its beautiful chalk downland and the likelihood of spotting something unusual. The trip on 26th May was no exception, with orchids to be admired and a couple of rare bee species. The Warren is currently undergoing various management trials, including a large exclosure that keeps rabbits from grazing an area of the downland. This is permitting more diverse herbs to grow and reducing the dominance of thistle. As the years pass it is likely that the quality of the plant life in this patch will improve further.
