Reserve Focus – Wye National Nature Reserve, Kent

By - Bob Gibbons

English Nature's reserve at Wye covers 104ha (257 acres) of steep escarpment on the chalk on the North Downs. It is a visually striking site, with its steep-sided dry valleys, but it is also of considerable importance for its populations of downland and woodland plants and animals in an area that has become steadily more impoverished over the last few decades.
