Flower-rich meadows

These four fields are probably the largest group of unimproved hay meadows in Montgomeryshire. For hundreds of years, the fields have been managed traditionally; the hay is cut after the flowers have set seed and then cattle graze until the grass stops growing. An area of species-rich wetland further enhances the second field, attracting wintering Snipe to the reserve. There are over 100 different flowers and grasses at Ty Brith, including several species of orchid - in today's modern silage fields you are lucky to find 6 different flower species!
