About the reserve
This reserve is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the rarity of its damp, unimproved neutral grassland habitat. The soil at Frogmore Meadow supports a very good range of grasses and meadow flowers such as yellow rattle, Devil’s-bit scabious and ragged-robin. In the summer Frogmore Meadow is a mass of beautiful wildflowers which are an important food source for many nectar feeding insects such as bees and butterflies.
Spring: Blackcap, bluebells, chiffchaff, green-winged orchid.
Summer: Betony, meadowsweet, marbled white, southern marsh orchid, meadow brown, ragged robin, ringlet, valerian, yellow rattle.
Autumn/ Winter: Fieldfare, green woodpecker, little egret, redwing.
Site entrance:There is a signposted gated entrance 30m from the Chess Valley Walk across an area of private
land. Please stay on path.
Access by public transport
