KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 There is a small car park over­look­ing a scrape and wader roost. Best watched with a scope. 2 Main car park and vis­i­tor cen­tre found just in­side the gate of North Plain Farm. Walk along the path, past ‘crop­ping’, look­ing out for finches and spar­rows. 3 A third of the way down is a set of screens over­look­ing a set of pools. Sev­eral ducks use these along with mixed breed­ing waders. A sec­ond small screen shows where Lit­tle Grebes breed. 4 The hide has a south-fac­ing view over wet grass­land and win­ter water as well as Bow­ness Com­mon. An­other area of crop­ping is found to the far left where birds of prey of­ten hunt. Roger­sceugh Farm is seen in the dis­tance. 5 A cir­cu­lar walk now takes you back to the car park – so keep look­ing out for the birds.
