About Us

Wild About Perton are a group of residents working with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, South Staffordshire Council and Perton Parish Council to protect and enhance Perton’s green spaces for wildlife and the community. We have no political affiliations. Our policies, plans and activities are agreed collectively by a steering committee which meets at Perton Library each month. The group organises regular FREE events which the public are welcome to attend. We try to ensure that the events are welcoming, safe, interesting, educational and above all—fun! For details of recent events see the News page and for forthcoming events please see our Calendar of Events.

                          Why not join in our next event?

One of our first activities was to build our knowledge of the bird, plant and animal life in the area. On Upper Lake Mallard, Coot, Moorhen, Canada Geese, Tufted Duck and Heron can regularly be seen with occasional visits from Mute Swan, Great Crested Grebe and Pochard. The infrequent flash of the Kingfisher certainly keeps the bird watcher on his toes! The surrounding countryside is intersected by many public footpaths lined by fine old Oaks, Ash and Willow. The bird life can be particularly abundant in gardens close to the woodland with all 6 Tit species, a good range of finches, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Robin, Dunnock and Wren to be seen. 3 species of bat have been documented and a walk in Autumn will yield a wide variety of fungi. What next for Wild About Perton? We want to encourage Kingfishers to breed, encourage the return of the Water Vole and we are planning a wildlife pond.
