Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 Park down by the river just past the vis­i­tor cen­tre. Look over the river for any signs of wa­ter birds and the view back to the his­toric mills.

2 Walk along the foot­path lis­ten­ing for bird song and check­ing the flora for signs of spring and your first but­ter­flies. Then walk past the hy­dro­elec­tric plant which is at Bon­ning­ton.

3 Search the ma­ture trees for war­blers, with a great chance of Wood War­bler. Scan the crags along the river for any signs of fal­cons.

4 In win­ter, check for tit flocks to look for any signs of Nuthatch or Treecreeper. Th­ese woods are full of fungi in au­tumn, so try pho­tograph­ing them so you can ID them later.
