Are you seeing less of this ……
and more of this????
In 2020 the city council declared a biodiversity emergency, recognising that action needs to be taken immediately to stop the decline of native species.
Worcester City Council’s policy of planting wildflowers and leaving some areas to nature itself is paying dividends – and has resulted in what is believed to be a first for the city – several southern marsh orchids.
Around a dozen of the plants have appeared in our parish, at Trotshill Field, one of several sites that the City Council has managed as traditional hay meadows for the last three years. As well as increasing our flora it will provide habitat for our wildlife, which will result in more butterflies, birds, bats and insects.
Remember we can all play our part in helping nature, by creating more wildlife friendly gardens!
