A New Book: Shropshire Bird Sites

Shropshire Bird Sites

A guide to the best Bird Sites in Shropshire

Original illustrations by Edgton village resident artist Martin Jordan.


A couple of years ago, one of our members, John McDermott (big John) asked if he could speak at an evening meeting. He gave an impassioned speech about the birds that are killed on the British airfields in Cyprus. Many of us hadn’t heard about this atrocity, but John suggested we should do something about it.

We didn’t…we forgot.

So last year he spoke to us again. John was so concerned it was a real tear jerker. We couldn’t ignore it anymore.

This is how this booklet came into being.

Everyone we asked was happy to contribute a favourite walk or photographs.

A big thanks to all of them and to Martin Jordan of hedgehog rescue, who is a talented, published artist.

Also to you, for your donation, which will go to the RSPBs international fund to help migrating birds.
