Green Flag, Green Woodpecker


Wapley Bushes Conservation Group are over the moon to have been recognised with the Green Flag Community Award 2022. We think this is the 13th time we've received this award - we're losing count! The award recognises how well our community volunteers manage the Meadows, Woodland and Orchard of Wapley Bushes Local Nature Reserve for everyone to enjoy.

In keeping with the "Green Theme", we spotted this lovely juvenile Green Woodpecker on Wapley Common recently, near the woodland edge towards Rabbit Corner.
