Every June and early July we monitor the activities of a very rare butterfly on nearby Collard Hill. Find out more about the Large Blue and which other butterflies have been spotted on the Large Blue Blog, which will be picked up again next year.
Brean Down's rare plants
The southern slopes of the down have three rare plants. They live in close proximity in this closely grazed open turf. They are the white rock rose, dwarf sedge and Somerset hair grass. In high summer, this almost unique vegetation community in Britain has an almost Mediterranean appearance.
