Perry Wood Local Nature Reserve, Worcester, Worcestershire
Perry Wood Local Nature Reserve is one of two woodlands within the city of Worcester. It’s popular with locals who come here to admire the views, to walk the dog or just to potter about amidst nature. Like most ancient semi-natural woodland it’s home to a diversity of wildlife, especially with there being unimproved grassland, scrub and bramble within its boundaries. Buzzards, sparrowhawks, woodpeckers, nuthatches and treecreepers aren’t unusual here, along with several species of butterfly, and in the summer, you might even see a lizard basking in the sunshine. Come in the spring and the woodland floor is awash with bluebells, mingled with the white of ransoms and windflowers. There’s a car park at Perry Wood, information boards and a waymarked trail. What’s a great shame is that these beautiful green areas within our towns and cities aren’t immune from rare acts of mindless vandalism.
