Chudleigh Knighton Heath / Narrow-headed ants
About the event
Chudleigh Knighton Heath is a heathland mosaic of gorse, heather and grassland, a landscape which once stretched for miles across the Bovey Basin to Bovey Tracey. The nature reserve acts as a vital heathland home to the Narrow-headed ant (Formica exsecta). Always rare it now dependant on this single site and without this targeted action the ant is at high risk of being lost altogether.
