Ham Woods wildflower meadow

Ham WoodsNeutral grasslands with a moderate botanical interest are located towards the centre of the reserve.

These areas were formerly grazed fields. The condition of the grasslands has improved through recent management, including extensive scrub clearance works carried out in 2013 in collaboration with the Friends of Ham Woods.

Species present include:

  • Common knapweed
  • Yarrow
  • Sweet vernal grass
  • Crested dog's tail

There are also records of the great green bush cricket (a Devon UK Biodiversity Action Plan species).
