Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve


 I've just see a message from the Cornwall Wildlife Trust about Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve on the Lostwithiel road.

Volunteers are required to help us to graze our Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve - all you need is a good set of teeth and a healthy appetite... 

In fact a willingness to visit this wild corner of Cornwall and a pair of eyes is all you need - we are looking for people to help us to check the 10 native breed ponies we have grazing this valuable site. 

Being between Lerryn and Lostwithiel it is a long way for us to travel from our HQ at Allet every day but these animals are helping to conserve the rare heath lobelia plant, the only place it is found in Cornwall, so their work is vital.

If you live in that area and can spare an hour or two a week we'd love to hear from you, please contact Peter Gardener, the Reserves Officer for Mid Cornwall on
