Traditionally-managed pasture
Traditionally-managed pasture
As I was photographing Crested Dog's-tail a jolly young farmer rode up on a giant buggy. He explained that he received a payment for managing this field of mixed grasses in a traditional way. It had been lightly grazed. The only mowing to date, mid-June, had been to suppress thistles, right. He was happy with the arrangement because he didn't like intensive farming. This land had been part of Hawkes Farm but was now managed by Wickeridge Farm SX7869

The Crested Dog's-tail photos didn't come out well, so - not submitted. Another day. Grasses are really difficult to photograph - let alone identify!
