Burham Downs

Kent Wildlife Trust are now grazing their own Exmoors on Burham Downs for the first time. Elfin and Merlin travelled from Silverdale to Maidstone earlier this year to graze chalk downland, woodland, and scrub with two old chalk quarries. Dave Hutton (warden) is pleased with the way in which the ponies are grazing the site to date and is getting lots of positive feedback from the visitors. Ann Massini is helping to support the project.
