We deliberately do not mow large areas of our Coastal Park during the summer months – this allows all our beautiful wild flowers to give a great display and helps our birds, insects and wild life to thrive.
 
Did you spot any of the following this year?... 

Everlasting Pea
  Field Scabious  Field Bindweed
