What do you do with a Former Golf Course?

I was invited by the Wyre Forest Rangers to view an addition to the West Kidderminster Wildlife Corridor today: part of the former Burlish Park Golf Club site, connecting with the Rifle Range and Burlish Top Natures Reserves. Ranger Adam Wright enthusiastically guided a group of us over the site and described in detail its nature potential. It’s good to know that some areas are being preserved for nature, even though many more are being lost to residential, industrial and other business service developments.

Below are a few views of the site:

    • Thanks Steve. We must find ways to improve the lot of flora and fauna within and around industrial and residential landscapes. All it takes is the will to do it, the ability to plan it, and the support to achieve it.
