Brownies Visit Wildlife Hospital
Heavy rain and muddy paths were the challenge for Chelford Brownies on a recent woodland walk at Lower Moss Wood in Ollerton.
The girls were there to learn about care of rescued animals and birds, as part of their work for Friend to Animals badge. Warden Ray Jackson first took the girls on a woodland walk, pointing out various trees, flowers and animal habitats.
The Brownies then took a tour of the Wildlife Hospital, seeing care and medical facilities for small and large mammals, and rescued birds. 'Patients' varied from grey squirrels and bats to a variety of adult and baby birds, including a barn owl, lapwing and jays.
