News from Severn Gorge Countryside Trust in Coalbrookdale:-

 

'A little of what we have been up to this week: conducting our bi-annual access surveys, moving the Soay sheep, chopping logs and collaborating with Telford and Wrekin Council's Climate Change partnership.  Last weeks' newt survey was super, finding lots of newts present in two of the three ponds we surveyed, as well as an abundance of other creatures including dragonfly larvae and caddisfly larvae.  Most of the newts seem to have been palmate newts, but we may have spotted a great crested newt too.   The surveys are a first step in obtaining funding to support pond improvements that will benefit the ponds' residents.

'Following our palmate newts find, Neil Nash who is running Bioslog; a year-long survey of wildlife and plants, has invited volunteers to contribute any sightings this year within the Telford and Wrekin boundary to Neil at oakashhazel@gmail.com.  Bioslog has reached around 500 species so far.

'This May we will be participating in 'No Mow May' on a few of our sites.  We will be putting up signs to encourage others to participate in 'No Mow May' too, and help provide more flowery food for hungry bees and other pollinators.

'This year's Mental Health Awareness week's theme is Nature (18-24 May).  You can find lots of lovely walks around the gorge on the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust website and Facebook.   Also, Jan, who co-ran our Feel Good Friday Forest Bathing walks in 2019/20, will be offering walks on the Attingham Estate.   I highly recommend!   This is the link to book onto a walk: Free Forest Bathing Walks.'
