Short Walks Herefordshire & the Wye Valley: Leisure Walks for All Ages
Short Walks Herefordshire & the Wye Valley: Leisure Walks for All Ages

Herefordshire is renowned for its hop-yards and cider-apple orchards, threaded by peaceful footpaths, lanes and byroads amidst rich pastures and wooded limestone ridges grazed by the famous terracotta-coloured cattle. But the county also has a wild side; the huge sandstone wall of the Black Mountains rises in the west, the Forest of Dean and the remarkable Wye Gorge fringe the south and the Malvern Hills offer a dramatic eastern boundary. With walks in and around villages, modest strolls to farmyard chapels, Wye-side meadows and windswept hilltops and longer walks into the more remote corners of this undiscovered county.

Where to Watch Birds in the West Midlands: Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Former West Midlands County
Where to Watch Birds in the West Midlands: Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Former West Midlands County

Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the former West Midlands County are collectively known as the West Midlands. This is a region of contrasts: from the bleak moors of Peak District to the mellow hills of the Cotswolds; or from the wooded hillsides and streams of the Welsh border country to the lush valleys of the Avon. Within its rich mosaic of habitats can be found a combination of northern species such as Twite and Black Grouse and southern ones such as Nightingale; western ones like the Pied Flycatcher and the eastern Red-legged Partridge. Black Redstarts maintain a tenuous presence in the hub of Birmingham and the Marsh Warbler can still be found in Worcestershire. This third edition has been extensively revised and updated, with several new sites added and some existing site accounts considerably expanded. It is the essential tool for anyone birding in this rewarding region.
