In this International Year of Biodiversity we want to encourage more wild flowers in Earley’s gardens and roadside verges. Can you help?
Roadside verges in Earley contain a large number of wild flowers - admittedly most are common, but nevertheless valuable to wildlife, particularly insects, e.g. common birdsfoot trefoil, dandelion, oxeye daisy and many others. We have to accept that these are mostly fleeting due to municipal mowing, but even so valuable in wildlife terms, and could be managed sympathetically.
We are planning to set up a group that will carry out wild flower surveys, record veteran trees, map Earley’s cycle ways and footpaths, etc.
