Heathland

Landscapes contain a mosaic of habitats all of which have varying degrees of interconnectedness we aim to explore these habitats and reveal the species that are associated with them.

Lowland heath

Heathlands in the lowlands are few and far between but they do provide a range of habitats which are home to specialist wildlife and are well worth exploring. Heathlands are all about the mosaics of habitats which provide multiple niches for a wide range of species. Many heaths are relatively close to towns and they impartĀ  a sense of wildness despite them being mostly the result of management by man over the centuries.
