New Guides Available
The Community Trust has just published two new leaflets in conjunction with Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust to help people explore Warley Woods in a different way and find out more about the wildlife that can be found here.
The bird identification bookletwas written by Steven Hodgkinson from the Wildlife Trust’s Living Landscape Project and was designed by Paul Gardiner, a freelance designer who undertook this work as a volunteer. It takes you through the four main habitats of the site – parkland, woodland, golf course and conifers and describes three birds that can be found in each.
The other new leaflet is a guide to the Wilderness showing a sample of the wild plants and insects that can be found there, with pictures helping you to identify them. While the leaflet can not cover the myriad of wild things that are making The Wilderness their home. It should help to whet your appetite and bring a new dimension to a walk through this newly created area. This leaflet was designed by Richard Saunders of Bacroom Design who went to extraordinary lengths to source all the different photos that we needed. Text was provided by Paul Stevenson and Mike Bloxham of the Wildlife Trust who undertook the surveys on the Wilderness in 2009.
Copies of the leaflet can be collected from The Pavilion or downloaded here. Bird Leaflet. The Wilderness. Any schools or other groups wanting to use the leaflets for an activity session at Warley Woods can request multiple copies. Just call the office. 0121 420 1061
