Walk SUN 7 – Wildflower & Wildlife Walk

The biodiversity of Cotswold limestone grassland makes it very important. A typical patch can contain over 40 species of flowering plants. Wildflowers support a huge variety of invertebrates. In turn, the invertebrates support a variety of mammals, bats, and birds higher up the food chain.

From our start point, we head towards Chapel Plaister and explore Hezelbury Common’s limestone flora and fauna. We then walk towards Westwells to examine a brownfield site with a rich flora.
