The Nature of Wyre: A Wildlife-Rich Forest in the Heart of Britain

£35.00

On the borders of Shropshire and Worcestershire, the Wyre Forest is one of Britain's most important ancient woodlands and its survival, just 25 miles from the centre of Birmingham, is a modern miracle. Its history and geographical position make it home to a stunning array of wildlife from all corners of the British Isles which includes Dippers, Slavemaker Ants and Narrow-leaved Helleborine orchids. Wyre is justifiably known for its Lepidoptera and recent conservation efforts have succeeded in restoring nationally important populations of Pearl-bordered and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries. Wood White and Grizzled Skipper also occur along with White Admiral and Silver-washed Fritillary. Wyre is also one of the most significant UK sites for moths and is home to such species as Drab Looper, White-barred Clearwing and the beautiful and very local micro-moth Schiffermuelleria grandis.
