Quaking Grass - Briza media.
Also called Totter Grass

A native perennial, most common on calcereous dry pastures, and downs in South England. It is found growing naturally in the churchyard, and some is found in the reserve.

It doesn't cope with improved grass, so is good for a flower meadow, it is of little value to farmers for animal feed as it produces very few leaves.
