Bodiam Avenue Site Winter Grazing

The sheep have finished grazing the sites between Bodiam Avenue and Heath Hill Avenue and have made a good job of clearing a lot of coarse growth. During their stay they were checked at least twice a day by volunteer ‘Lookerers” and any problems reported to the ranger or shepherd. The last two weeks were very cold and snowy and the ice on the water trough had to be broken regularly.

If you would like to become a “Lookerer” to check the sheep grazing on sites around Brighton please get in touch with the Countryside Rangers and you will go on a short training course.
