1 Park at Storiths and walk down the hill to­wards the woods. Check out the vista for rap­tors.

2 En­ter the wood along the River Wharfe check­ing out for wa­ter birds as you walk to­wards the first foot bridge, called Cavendish Bridge.

3 Con­tinue up river check­ing the nest boxes for Pied Fly­catcher singing out­side them. Wood­peck­ers are a good bet here.
