The 3 Parishes Community Wildlife Group covers the parishes of Gobowen & Selattyn, Weston Rhyn and St. Martins. It was formed in late 2016 to provide a forum for people living in the parishes to meet, learn and contribute to local wild life conservation.
The group meets monthly, rotating between venues in the 3 parishes, to hear speakers talking on subjects of wildlife interest.

We have taken part in the Curlew and Lapwing survey for the past 3 years and intend to carry on with it. See Survey 2018
The 2019 survey is complete. Several new sites for Lapwing have been found which is good news. The picture below was taken just outside the 3 parishes over the Welsh border, but good to see a Lapwing with her chick.
It is also hoped that we can do other surveys in the future.
Breaking News : A meeting will be held on March 19th 2020 when Leo Smith will report on the results of the 2019 survey. We will also be allocating squares for the 2020 survey. If you would like to take part but can’t make the March meeting please contact Celia Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org
