Really hot "Bees' Needs Walk" at Wapley Bushes on 17 July

Thanks to everyone who came to Wapley Bushes for Wapley Bushes Conservation Group's "Bees' Needs Walk" in the Orchard for the Future. Event photos by Alan Monaghan.

14 of us explored the Orchard, the Lower Meadow and surrounding areas, learning about pollinators and a little local history. We saw lots of butterflies - mainly Marbled Whites and Meadow Browns - and one of the local buzzards put in several guest appearances. 

The Orchard for the Future has recently been given the national Bees Needs Award.

Don't forget that we've got another walk coming up on Saturday 31 July, looking at the woodland and the effects of Ash Dieback Disease. Click here for details
