Take a guided walk through Droitwich wildlife
3:43pm Tuesday 8th July 2014 in Local
NATURE lovers in Droitwich are being invited to join a walk along one of the area’s wildlife hotbeds, as part of a tour along the Coney Meadow reed bed on Wednesday, July 16.
The reed bed on the Droitwich canals, is home to hundreds of species including warblers, reed buntings and cuckoos to herons, frogs and otters.
Dr Mark Robinson, an ecologist at the Canal Trust will be leading a two kilometre walk through the area, giving his personal insight into the wildlife there.
He said: “The walk is a great chance to find out all about the huge variety of species that make their home here in Droitwich. We’ll be pointing out their habitats and some of the key things to look for when you’re out nature watching. If we’re lucky we might even see some of the rarer species that live in the area, like water rail or kingfishers. There are few better locations to be on a summer’s day, it should be great fun and I’d encourage anyone looking to learn more about our local wildlife to come along.”
The walk is free, and will run from 10-11.30am from Salwarpe Church Bridge on Copcut Lane.
