ECO-MINDED members of the 3rd Droitwich St Peter’s Scouts Group have played their part in helping to improve the biodiversity of the Coney Meadow reed bed.
The area was created around three years ago as part of the restoration of the town’s historic canals and has become an important wildlife reserve with several bird species breeding there.
British Waterways ecologist Dr Mark Robinson went along to one of the groups regular meetings and helped the 15 scouts construct an insect box each.
The troop then visited the reed bed and placed their boxes to attract insects looking for new nest sites.
Mark said: “It’s been such a great experience and really rewarding working with the scout group, as they were so enthusiastic and keen to get involved in improving the diversity of wildlife on the reserve.”
