Good "Love Parks Week" walk on 31 July


Nine of us explored the Woodlands and the Upper Meadow for the second of our summer walks. In particular we looked at how Dodington Parish Council and Wapley Bushes Conservation Group have been tackling the problem of Ash Dieback Disease. 

It was good to see how most of the monolithed trees are already throwing out new shoots. These will provide habitat for insects (so bird food), bats and lichen over the next few years while replacement trees are growing.

On the way back we stopped to watch the bees and other pollinators enjoying the buddleia on the bridge over the railway.
