The Bride Biodiversity Mix will be replaced this year with a NEW long term headland mixture that will last for up to 10 years with a little bit of management every spring. The reason is to satisfy customer demands for a long term mixture that will provide flowers, seed, nesting cover and winter protection. It wil be expensive as it wil contain wildflowers and we will be aiming to have many species that are native to Ireland in the mix. The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust advise the use of similiar mixes for their Grey partridge conservation projects and swear by them.
