KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go BIrding -

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.
