11th November 2008 – Sheep Help to Restore Woodland

Today saw the arrival of 12 Wiltshire Horn sheep, on loan to BWAG from Kent Wildlife Trust. They will be with us for a 3 week trial period to graze an area of land which we are trying to restore to chalk grassland. The sheep will keep the scrub encroachment to a minimum and allow the site to rejuvenate and flourish. The field is located adjacent to KH56, the bridle path which is now restored, close to Strawberry Banks. Can all dog owners be aware that sheep are in the vicinity and please keep your pets on a lead – thank you.

BWAG would like to thank the many volunteers who will be checking the sheep twice daily and to KWT for their continued and strong support of our project.
