Staffordshire Wildlife Trust – Management of the Roaches
Excellent talk given by Jon Rowe for the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, all about the Management of The Roaches.
In a previous blog, we mentioned that we would be attending an evening talk given by Jon Rowe, the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s ranger in charge of the beautiful local wildlife reserve on the edge of Leek – The Roaches.
Despite it being a wet and windy evening, turnout was great – the room was full and and we can guarantee that everyone in the room learnt something new! Jon told us all about the work he and his team of trainees and volunteers perform, in all weathers and difficult conditions, to enhance the environment and encourage the amazing variety of wildlife to be found in the reserve.
He also talked about the history of the area from geological formation to visiting princesses, escaped wallabies to cannibals! All this was delivered in such an engaging and enthusiastic manner (despite the fact that he was still getting over a horrendous dose of man-flu!)
We’d like to thank Jon for a thoroughly enjoyable evening and we hope to see him this summer when we go up to the Roaches to watch the magnificent peregrines!
