Initial results from wildlife weekend

First draft of results

Note: This is a rough draft.  Only sightings of bird species have been included and no numbers of sightings of a species have been given. Also no distinction has yet been drawn between species seen on the canal and those seen in the parks and other areas adjacent to the canal. It is just a start.

Group meeting and next litter pick

Group meeting and next litter pick


It has been a little while since our last meeting, but the next meeting of the Worcester Canal Group is at 7:15pm on 23rd October at The Cricketers.

We hope as many people can make it and discuss our plans for the future. 

Please note the new venue. The Cricketers is on Angel Street, next to McDonalds.

They have a function room upstairs and very good real ale downstairs!

Litter Pick

Our next litter pick is on Saturday 28th October. We’ve been low on numbers the past two litter picks, so please come along if you can.
