Notes

Previously, I had looked at the playing field fringes, and the bed of nettles, brambles and knotweed by the river. But there's a tarmac area that seems to belong to Bluecoat School. And, well ... go and have a look. It's right by the school, and I'm still not sure who owns it, so best go at weekends or school holidays. But nothing says No Entry. The tarmac just east of R. Sherbourne gives onto scrub woodland and some sort of derelict industrial site. Or you can go by the river, and there's a very narrow path under the railway, leading into a wooded area with probable WW2 origins - piles of rubble and glass suggest that era. A lot appears to be disused allotments. FANTASTIC mixed habitat! There could be anything here!
