From the phone box layby follow the waymarked sign (not the public footpath sign) down a small lane to a swing gate. It is an open area at the start, so check the sky for Buzzard and that Red Kite!
1Then head down to the brook and check for Kingfisher and Dipper. There should also be Grey and Pied Wagtails around.
2Carry on up to the woodland and check for Tawny Owl and also Woodcock. Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers are in the area but Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers are far less common now – keep looking, though! Little Owls are possible as you walk round the site.
3Head back either along the lane and pick up the public footpath, or return via the first route. Hedges in the lane can be good for seeing and hearing Yellowhammer.
