Welcome

About us

The Upper Onny Wildlife Group formed in 2003 to work within the local community to find out more about local populations of Lapwing, Curlew, Skylark and other wildlife and to help in their conservation. Since 2003, we have extended our recording activities to encompass plants and other groups.

We cover a total area of about 126 square kilometres, between the Long Mynd and the Welsh Border (from just north of Bridges, Pennerley and Shelve, as far south as Horderley and Bishop’s Castle), including the parishes of Ratlinghope, Wentnor, Norbury, Myndtown, More and Lydham.
