White leaved oak burnt by "unattended fire" probably a BBQ according to Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue
Such a shame the famous White leaved Oak on the southern Malverns is no more.
Of considerable historic and cultural importance.
Can’t be replaced.

Credit to @ChorleyCouncil for the forthcoming disposable BBQ ban, a great result @unitedutilities hopefully @boltoncouncil @blackburndarwen to follow suit https://www.lep.co.uk/news/politics/chorley-cooks-disposable-barbecue-ban-reduce-risk-wildfires-2905750
Whilst it may not be an indigenous species it was still rather sweet to see this mandarin duckling at #Yarrow and who doesn’t say “awww” when they see a cygnet all snuggled on its mama’s back? @chorleynats2
