Sheep once more on the island in sandpit

On Wednesday, May 22 we once more transported sheep to the island in the Cep II sand pit. The sheep stayed there for a whole week and they grazed our experimental plots for restoration of dry grasslands where bird's-foot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus) and wood small-reed (Calamgrostis epigejos) started to overgrow the psamophytic vegetation.

This management is as traditionally carried out by our colleague Alča Bartošová and her ecologically concious herd of sheep.  Their 8-day stay ended today on Wednesday, May 29.

We greatly thank all the protagonists (sheep and people included), this year for the fifth time!!
