1 A large car park has a mixture of Beech and some Yew. Look for thrushes and even finches if it is a ‘mast’ year, which means there’ll be an abundance of ‘forest fruit’ for the birds to enjoy.
2 I walked up the left side of the burn as it seems much steeper than the right hand side and is closer to the water. You may find some amazing views of Dipper. 3 Mixed conifers offer the chance of Crossbill and Siskin. 4 The highest waterfall is by the bridge that takes you back down. Look upstream for any signs of feeding wagtails.
5 A large birch wood is found to the left of the path. Listen out for warblers and Redstart in the spring.
