Over 40 join guided walk around Berrow Nature Reserve

More than 40 people joined a free guided walk around Berrow's Nature Reserve on Tuesday evening (June 21st).

The event, led by Bob Corns from Natural England, saw the group get a tour of the nature reserve, which includes part of Berrow beach and sand dunes and grassland.

Berrow Dunes supports one of the most diverse floras in Somerset with at least 270 species of flowering plant being recorded on site.

The nature reserve is also one of the best sites for moths and recently three rare species were recorded, including the Pinion Spotted Pug Moth last recorded in Somerset in 1868!

Sedgemoor District Council, in partnership with Natural England and Berrow Conservation Group, currently manage the reserve and wish to raise awareness of the wildlife importance of this site of special scientific interest.
