A nature charity has bought three wildflower meadows in a bid to preserve them.
Worcestershire Wildlife Trust used a £50,000 grant to purchase the Boynes Meadows site, opposite its nature reserve near Upton-upon-Severn.
The areas, although “important wildlife habitats”, are not legally protected, they said.
Helen Woodman, from the trust, said it would enable it to “protect and sustain these…fast-disappearing habitats”.
