Northern Brown Argus Transect
Recorders: Terry Whitaker Walk Time:
This transect was set up in 2003 as a single species transect to monitor the Northern Brown Argus but was discontinued. The route primarily covered limestone grassland with some patches of scrub; however, there was significant bracken cover in some areas. A management plan that includes a bracken control program has been developed by the YDNPA in conjunction with the landowner and was implemented in 2015, with the transect re-established in order to measure the effectiveness of conservation measures.
