Shrawley Wood, by kind permission of the Forestry Commission. This woodland has been known to Worcestershire Naturalists for a very long time and is famous for extensive areas of Small-leaved Lime coppice and standard trees, uncommon plants, insects and fungi. Part was planted post-war with conifers which are being removed.

Feckenham Wylde Moor, by kind permissions of Worcestershire Wildlife Trust which manages the site as a wildlife reserve . An interesting wet site based on fen peat with pools, marshy fields, reed beds and ditches, managed primarily for rough grazing. Relatively little information available on its invertebrates.

Full details of these visits together with a booking form will be circulated in February 2009. It is essential that you book for these visits - if you have not received details and are interested, please contact Harry Green.
