Westmorland Fells’ Hay Meadows

Restoration and conservation of hay meadows provides vital habitat for native wildlife. Traditional upland hay meadows are important for wildlife diversity being home to a profusion of wildflowers and  co-dependent pollinating insects. The Above images are prize winning entries from Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s 2009 Hay meadow photographic competition.
