Wild Mynd - Birds & Wildlife of the Long Mynd



The Long Mynd is the centrepiece of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With its rich and varied flora and fauna, the Long Mynd's national importance as a nature reserve is recognised through its designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It is one of the most important ornithological sites in the Midlands. Wild Mynd is superbly illustrated throughout with almost 200 colour photographs and especially commissioned line-drawings. It also includes annotated wildlife walks, nature through the seasons and the best places to observe the special flora and fauna. Wild Mynd is based on several years of intensive fieldwork and research by the Long Mynd Breeding Bird Project, ecologists and volunteers from the National Trust and many professional and amateur naturalists. It includes a detailed systematic study of the birds of the Long Mynd, and their relationship with specific habitats is presented for the first time.
