1 Check woodland for Bullfinch (above) Greenfinch, Treecreeper, Goldcrest, Jay, Coal Tit and woodpeckers. Areas of Birch and Alder attract Lesser Redpoll, Siskin, Chaffinch and Reed Bunting. Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, Reed Warbler and Linnet are present in summer.
2 The pool is easily viewed for wintering wildfowl with Water Rail and Snipe occasionally present. A Red-crested Pochard was a recent visitor. Kingfisher, Grey Wagtail, Cormorant, Grey Heron and Little Grebes seen.
3 The now grassed former landfill area is good for Green Woodpecker, Meadow Pipit, wagtails, occasional passage Wheatear and Kestrel. The once common Sky Lark has diminished in numbers, but may still be present.
4 The Holly Wood nature reserve is an excellent woodland, holding Tawny Owl and occasional Woodcock. Notable recent records in this area include a singing Wood Warbler in spring and a visiting Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, so expect the unexpected.
