Just Add Cows

Corral building in action on Thursday

Corral building in action on Thursday

Today was our final day on the re-fencing of Upper Titchfield. The only thing left to do was finish off the cattle holding corral at the entrance of the grazed area, which we started on Thursday. The corral didn’t get off to the best of starts with the post knocker on the tractor not working properly, but that made today feel even more sweeter and well earned once the final product had come together.

This area of Upper Titchfield hasn’t been grazed for over a decade and once was home to rare plants such as Marsh Helleborine. Hopefully with some careful management and cattle grazing we can get this area back to its former glory!

A huge amount of effort has been put in by the Beechcroft teams, the Hampshire County Council (HCC) volunteer teams and rangers. Today marked a great end point for getting all the infrastructure in for this little project. Now all we need to do is add some cows!

In bird news a Wryneck has been spotted both days over the weekend at Southmoor.
