Member Event: The Wyre Forest in Spring

11 May

We have managed to persuade Brett Westwood to once again take us on a walk in the Wyre Forest. Last September members were treated with an amazing insight to the long standing ecological study of the forest.

Why not book a place and come along this spring, May is a superb time to visit Wyre Forest when the spring birdsong peaks and  Wood Warbler, Pied Flycatcher and Redstart sing along Dowles brook Valley. Tree Pipits will be singing too and Dippers and Grey Wagtails will be on the brook. Wyre is rich in insects and Pearl-bordered Fritillary butterflies, the focus of  recent conservation efforts , are at their best in May. We should  also be able to view special plants such as the Narrow-leaved Helleborine orchid , Lily-of-the Valley and Mountain Melick grass.

If you are interested please email Nadia at communications@smallwoods.org.uk or call 01952 432769.

Please note there will be a charge of £10/head for this event.
