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.
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.
