Wild Herefordshire

Herefordshire is a county of great beauty encompassing a rich tapestry of habitats and species. Several of the county’s rivers are of international importance, supporting otters, kingfishers, pearl mussels and stone flies. Many rare species of butterfly are found, including high brown and pearl bordered fritillary. Our woodlands are national strongholds for the dormouse and our parklands are famous for invertebrates. The Lugg Meadows are nationally renowned as the largest area of Lammas Meadow in the country, with rare snakeshead fritillary and narrow-leaved water dropwort flowers.
