Further tree management

Towards the mid-point of the Wom brook’s passage through the village, (where a small underground stream emerges in a waterfall, which in turn feeds the Wom ), the result of recent tree management work is quite noticeable.

In the above photograph, taken from the south bank of the brook, tree stumps clearly show the recent results of chain-saw usage to fell several thick tree trunks. Further evidence of this work may be seen along the banks of the brook, heading towards the village centre,

(Although not easily discernable, the overgrown waterfall is located towards the left of the picture, behind the tree stumps. In the foreground, you can just make out the brook.).

Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis)

Apologies for this late posting (it should have been posted long ago!), but a couple of us spotted this lone snowdrop growing on the bank of the Wom a couple of weeks ago-a solitary example, but quite distinctive against a predominantly green background.

Forthcoming Meeting-31/3/04


District Council officials have arranged to meet with local volunteers at 7:30 pm, on Wednesday 31st March 2004, in the Civic Centre, Wombourne. Hopefully there will be further news relating to the proposed developments planned for the section of the Wombrook which runs through Wombourne Park.
