#grazeroftheweek this week is Gwyn the British Blue. Gwyn and his brother Llwyd are grazing at Eithinog in Upper Bangor.

Eithinog is a SSSI designated for its grassland fungi, and is also rich in wildflower grassland. With a herd of belted galloways, the two commercial British Blue cattle have plenty to eat and are doing a great job amongst the orchids and other wild flowers.

Eithinog is owned and managed by North Wales Wildlife Trust.
