This bare patch is the result of a recent fire!
It’s a fairly large area which has been damaged, destroying habitat for wildlife.
Obviously, it could’ve been a whole lot worse, but nonetheless it’s disappointing that certain people
are either deliberately ruining the green spaces or are not taking enough due care
where there are dry grasses.
These photos were taken at lunchtime on Monday 26th August 2013.
As you can see, much of the grass has been allowed to grow which creates perfect habitats for a variety of wildlife species.
There are new and improved bins for litter and dog waste too, so no excuses for leaving a mess.
Locals and visitors can all enjoy blackberrying at this time of year.

In the distance you can see the top of The Town Hall as well as ‘Jumbo’ the Water Tower in the centre of Colchester.
