Worcester Walk

Grid Ref SO59471165

AND

Pan Tod, Ruardean Hill

Grid Ref SO634170

Again, this week, our FE Rangers had organised groups of 6 people and we were spread out across the forest.

The weather was really foul so we all had to wear sufficient waterproof clothing. This did not deter us though! Both Worcester Walk and Pan Tod do look as though they are the same place but they are not!

 

Pan Tod

We were raking and moving grass off the main area to ensure the nutrients from the cuttings does not go back into the soil as it is a limestone escarpment.

Worcester Walk

On a drizzly morning we spent the time raking grass cuttings off the wild flower meadow. This was piled up under the hedges to provide cover for various reptiles including hopefully grass snakes.
