1Scan the sheep pasture for grounded waders such as Lapwing and Whimbrel and feeding areas for wagtails, pipits, finches and buntings. Gorse scrub attracts Linnet, Stonechat, Whinchat, Whitethroat and Sedge Warbler. Kestrel, Marsh Harrier and Buzzard are regularly noted hunting the fields.
2Stop and scan from the gate entrance for chats, Wheatear, warblers and flycatchers. A good spot for Wryneck or Red-backed Shrike and watching visible migration.
3At high tide shorebirds roost on the shingle beach, while gulls are commonplace. Check the security building for Black Redstart and Wheatear.
The clearings by the lookout tower often attract Green Woodpecker and Mistle Thrush with Little Owl on the barbed wire entanglements.
45The grid pylons provide ideal perches for Raven, Hobby and Peregrine. Check fences for chats and wagtails and fields for Wheatear, Stock Dove, partridges and Corn Bunting.
