Yellow rattle sowing in Fermanagh

 

I was able to spend a day with Giles Knight, of the Ulster wildlife Trust, who was sowing yellow rattle seed Fermanagh, (underneath the hanging rock) .

Giles manages the Magnificent meadow project in Fermanagh and Tyrone.   Magnificent Meadows  is a major, UK wide project, to restore and develop traditional hay meadows
