Recognised as an internationally important site for wetland birds, Wheldrake Ings is part of a complex of traditionally managed floodplain meadows which during times of flood can attract flocks of thousands of waterfowl. In June, the meadows are ablaze with colour and up to 35 species of flowering plant can be found per square metre. Plants growing in the meadows include great burnet, common knapweed, meadowsweet, meadow vetchling and cuckoo flower.
