This is a large site located in Dothill in Wellington, Telford. There are several access points, the main one being from Severn Drive. Please see the attached leaflet for further information.
What to see:
With woodland, hedgerows, two streams and grasslands the wildlife in this area is as diverse as the habitats. Buzzards can be seen soaring on the thermals during the summer months and successfully breed in the area. Other birds can be seen such as Pheasants, Bullfinches, Jays, Siskins, Chaffinches and many more.
The grasses are alive with butterflies, moths, grasshoppers and other creatures. Mice, shrews and voles all inhabit the area as do larger mammals such as rabbits and squirrels. This area is home to badger setts but they appear to be redundant and no longer used.
The area has many well trodden paths through the meadows and woodland with most interlinking or crossing over at some stage. A great area to explore.
Overwintering wildfowl including goosander, greylag goose, black backed gull, lesser black backed gull, shoveller, teal & tufted duck. Also greater & lesser spotted woodpecker, kingfisher, marsh tit, long-tailed tit, gold finch & goldcrest.
