Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

A car park is here, plus a newly planted orchid and grass­land area, of­fer­ing finches such as Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Bullfinch, along with many flow­ers and in­sects in sum­mer.

1A wil­low/alder carr is found be­fore the main wa­ters, which is great for war­blers in spring with breed­ing Chif­fchaff, Black­cap and Gar­den War­bler. Tur­tle Dove was once com­mon here!

2Two hides are found around the east la­goon with bird feed­ers at­tract­ing even Wa­ter Rail to feed on waste. Look out for or­chids along the tracks.

3Walk to the west la­goon via the River Tutt look­ing out for King­fisher and Long-tailed Tits. An evening walk may give Barn Owl or a Lit­tle Owl.

4The west la­goon is ideal for graz­ing Wi­geon in win­ter, with pas­sage waders in spring and au­tumn.
