The Urban Wildlife Ring

News February 2014

Gunnar Hjalmarsson who ran which hosted the The Urban Wildlife WebRing, has had the the rug pulled out from under him by his hosting company, so at the moment the Urban Wildlife webring is non operational.  Please bear with us while this problem is resolved, meanwhile if you have any questions please email .

Membership Information

The "Urban Wildlife" web ring is a collection of web sites featuring all forms of wildlife in the urban environment - Parks - Gardens - Open Spaces - Wildlife and more.  Originating in America in 1998, The Urban Wildlife ring passed into the care of Graham Leatherbarrow who has devoted his time to a tiny wildlife garden in the North-West of England, which he opened to visitors for charity events during the summer.  At the end of 2003 Graham moved on to pastures new in Isle of Skye and so subsequently passed on care of the Urban Wildlife ring to us here at Brickfields Country Park.

Web Rings? - what are they then?

Webrings - for those of you who are unfamiliar with them, are a way of bringing websites of similar content together on the web, making it easier to find information for a particular subject, in this case "Urban Wildlife".  All of them have a "next" button and pressing this button it will take you to the next site on the ring for you to view.  So if you keep going, you will eventually end up where you started from.  The advantage for member sites in belonging to a Webring is that it increases traffic to your site increasing your visibility to the rest of the world.

Existing members - to edit your site information.
