Blooming good year for bluebells


The blankets of bluebells at National Trust’s Dudmaston near Bridgnorth have thrived this year thanks to a programme of sensitive woodland management.

National Trust Area Ranger Mike Annis said, “Wide sunny pathways in the woodland, known as rides, are perfect habitats for butterflies, bees and wildflowers, including the bluebell. Our programme of woodland maintenance is improving biodiversity in the dingle by allowing more natural light to reach the woodland floor.”
