Foxes Bridge Wildlife Survey

Grid Ref SO 644 138

 

The team met at Foxes Bridge for a Wildlife Survey on a very hot day! We walked up a track where various ponds had been dug a few years ago. These ponds are now beginning to flourish and we could see evidence of the boar and deer footprints around them

There were quite a few Wild Strawberry plants in fruit
