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!!
