Different Species in the Meadows

Bishop’s Meadow is a Site of Nature Conservation Importance (SNCI) and consists of a mosaic of habitats from aquatic and emergent vegetation along the banks of the River Wey, damp ditches, tussocky grassland, rank vegetation, and scrub and remnant hedgerows. Numerous willows pollards border the ditches. All these habitats provide vital habitat, and feeding resources for a wonderful array of British wildlife.

This part of the website records some of the life to be found on or around the Bishop’s Meadow and the wider area surrounding Farnham.
