The Brown Moss Nature Reserve is home to a lot of water fowl and fungi (Aside from the fact that many of these are poisonous, please also remember that this is a nature reserve and leave them in place). Multiple paths throughout the area range from soft and boggy to buggy friendly.

Contents of the cache include log book, pen, pencil, brass coffee mill, bookmark, a mushroom pin, an owl and other collectibles as well as half the co-ordinates to the Virgo cache.(inside the log book and on information card)

Please be careful when retrieving and replacing the cache as there are a lot of muggles about.

A big thanks to the Shropshire County Council Countryside commission for their permission and assistance in planting this cache.

The ducks would appreciate any donations of bread offered to them. Wholemeal or brown bread is recommended.
