Welcome to Uttlesford Wildlife.
This website is provided by Members of the Uttlesford Local Group of Essex Wildlife Trust to give information about the wildlife that can be found in the rural countryside of Uttlesford District, around and between Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow and Stansted in north-west Essex. To find our reserves and other sites of interest go to Places to Visit.
Ancient woodland with Oxlips, and chalk grassland roadside verges are specialities of the area. There are also marsh sites in our river valleys, and traditional orchards, all offering opportunities to see many wildflowers including orchids.

Daws Grove Verge
The Special Roadside Verges provide a reminder of the botanical riches once found on meadow grassland, but which is now confined to a very few road verges. The Daws Grove verge is featured on the Cycle Ride 1 that you will find on the Walks and Rides page, and is among the best remaining in Essex. © Tony Morton
