Wildflower Meadow

Published 22 May 2023

The wildflower meadow in the St Bart’s Nature Reserve is looking great at this time of year.  A decade ago, this was simply part of the school field.  Now, it has a really high biodiversity and supports many insect species, such as the day-flying moth, the Burnet Companion, and several species of butterfly, such as the Common Blue and the Marbled White. The large area of white flowers is a lovely patch of Meadow Saxifrage, which is quite an unusual sight nowadays. Year 12 Biology students use this area to conduct Biodiversity surveys as part of their A Level study.
