KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 Check Ey­more Wood for Great Spot­ted and Green Wood­peck­ers, Siskin, Black­cap, Chif­fchaff and Gar­den War­blers. Lesser Red­poll, Cross­bill and Wood­cock all oc­cur, while there are also Red­legged Par­tridge in the area. 2 The small sed­i­ment pool holds Tufted Duck, Mal­lard, Coot and, oc­ca­sion­ally, Man­darin Duck and King­fisher. Keep an eye on the skies for the elu­sive Goshawk, par­tic­u­larly if vis­it­ing in late win­ter/early spring. 3 The larger reser­voir at­tracts Goosander, Great Crested Grebe, Cor­morant, Canada Goose, Grey and Pied Wag­tails. Waders are scarce, apart from pas­sage Com­mon Sand­piper. Com­mon and Arc­tic Terns visit from time to time. The shore­line looks a good bet for Rock Pip­its dur­ing mi­gra­tion, so keep a look out! 4 Along the River Sev­ern again look out for Man­darin, Goosander, Grey Heron and Marsh Tit, while Lesser Spot­ted Wood­pecker has also been seen.
