19th May 2019 - Wildflowers and Wallabies

Please be aware that the road to the wildlife reserve is in very poor condition. It is passable with care but very badly potholed and may need to be navigated carefully.
The wallabies are wild animals and seeing them is very likely but not guaranteed, especially with a large group.
The Curraghs is home to some rare flowers, including the spectacular Bogbean which is rarely seen anywhere else on the island. We'll also hope to see water mint, yellow iris, horsetails, ragged robin and many others.

2nd June 2019 - Wildflower Walk at Scarlett Point

Scarlett point is a unique habitat for wildflowers on the island. Its alkaline soil means that plants grow here that can’t be found anywhere else on the island, and some that are rare throughout Britain. On this walk we will hope to see the rare Purple Milk Vetch, as well as Bogbean which is rarely seen outside of the Curraghs. Several edible plants can also be found here, including Sea Beet and Rock Samphire.
