Survey visit to Nemo Down

Several Club members assisted Paul Tinsley-Marshall and Karen Weeks of Kent Wildlife Trust with baseline plant surveys of Nemo Down, Dover on 10th June. Though KWT have only been managing the site for two years, the removal of scrub and grazing with Konik ponies has already had an observable impact; on the half of the site surveyed, a high diversity of chalk downland indicator species were already present (in addition to a raven, buzzards and marsh tits).
