Grazing livestock at Lightwater Country ParkGrazing livestock at Lightwater Country ParkGrazing livestock
The Country Park regularly have grazing goats. They are on loan from the Surrey Wildlife Trust as part of our conservation works. The goats graze on the gorse and scrub to help maintain the open nature of the heathland and its associated wildlife. Weusually have around 20 goats from around April until July.

Watch out for updates and events about the goats which will be on the bulletin board outside the café.
