Holt Heath Grazing 2021

Published: 11 March 2021

In addition to the reflective collars that the cattle on the Heath have been wearing for the last few years, you may notice several also have GPS collars to track their movements. These collars will help monitor where the cattle are both for welfare reasons and also to build up a picture of where and when they are grazing different parts of the heath. As a reminder please ensure you close any pedestrian gates behind you when using the Heath to prevent the cattle roaming elsewhere.

The grazing allows the National Trust to maintain this important wildlife site which supports some of our rarest wildlife, such as the elusive Dartford Warbler, the mysterious Nightjar and the beautiful Silver Studded Blue Butterfly, as well as being a valued National Nature Reserve enjoyed by many local people.
