Firstly, the RSPB will be returning to Worcester this week, to set up their information stands and telescopes, educating the City on our resident peregrine falcons, that nest at St Andrews Spire. Live and recorded footage will be played to show the birds progress, and falcon fans will have the opportunity to see these magnificent birds close up, through the telescope. How lucky we are to have them!
Secondly, Shrawley Woods - arguably one of the best places in Worcestershire to enjoy the beautiful spring show of bluebells - will be welcoming the public on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May. The woods are maintained by villagers in Shrawley, which we think is an example of admirable community spirit. You can read more about this on the Worcester News website, which is where we found this amazing photograph, by Julie Royle.
Similarly, and seen as this Easter weekend will be perfect for lazy afternoon walks in the sunshine, Broadmoor Wood, which is maintained by the brilliant Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, is said to be looking simply spectacular at the moment. With blankets of golden kingcups, bluebells and hazel wood, dotted with yellow archangel, celandine, stitchwort and wood anemone, it really is one not to be missed!
