Bowara (near Enniskillen)
- Rose Cremin
Butterfly Conservation along with Branch members have been managing this small glen-side meadow site at Bowara near Enniskillen for a decade. It’s home to some of NI’s priority butterflies and moths including Dingy Skipper, Cryptic Wood White and Narrow-bordered Bee Hawkmoth.
We return to this species-rich grassland site each winter to manage scrub and saplings that threaten the rich habitat. Using hand-tools, we manage saplings of willow and birch and occasionally scythe sections as well to remove thatch build-up as grazing is not possible.
