Amongst many other benefits, grazing is a sustainable way of controlling aggressive species which would otherwise dominate areas through scrub encroachment. Working in partnership with the RSPB, the Council re-introduced cattle grazing to the site following a five-year consultation period. Visitors can use the grazing zone map to find out on which sections of the heath cattle are present. This area uses invisible fencing technology, meaning there is no permanent fencing. The technology works using GPS tracking devices on the cows' necks, emitting a sound when too close to the boundary line. As cattle will not be freely grazing across the whole site, visitors will have the option to avoid the cows completely. You can find the precise spot where the cows are onsite by scanning the QR codes on site posters that will link you to the NoFence mapping system.
