Its more than just a reserve

As members of the Friends of the Queslett Nature Reserve will be aware the FOQNR is not just about the reserve. We also look after the Aldridge Road Recreation Ground for example.
The FOQNR also takes an interest in other Environmental issues in the Oscott area.
For example some of use take part in small grot spot litter picks across the Oscott Ward as part of Councillor Keith Linnecor,s (the Chair of the FQNR) Grot squad team.
There are only limited things we can do as volunteers but I like to think it all helps.

Reserve swan recieving treatment.

Sadly one of the reserves swans has had to be taken away to be treated for an injury. Hopefully after treatment it will be in a fit enough condition to be released back into the reserve.

Help protect the reserves wildlife

The Local Parks manager has had a report from a member of public that he saw men in a blue Renault van parked on Booths Lane. They were also seen on the Queslett Nature Reserve with 4 fighting dogs setting snares?
If you are in the vicinity of the reserve and see anything suspicious please inform the Police.
Lets stop these thugs in their tracks and protect the reserves wildlife.
