Bird Watching (UK) - - Go BIrding -

1 From the car park, fol­low the track round the com­mon check­ing for Whitethroat, Lin­net, Wil­low War­bler or Yel­lowham­mer. Also a pos­si­ble Barn Owl, Wood­cock or Grasshop­per War­bler, though the lat­ter is ir­reg­u­lar, and Snipe.

2 Then fol­low the track south­wards through the edge of Wess­ing­ton Pas­ture to check for Dun­nock. Wren, Black­bird, Blue, Great and Coal Tit, Song Thrush and Robin but also be aware of a hunt­ing Spar­rowhawk. Check the scrub lay­ers for Gar­den War­bler and the sky for Buz­zard.

3 And across more open coun­try where Sky Larks hover above and, of course, look for the Buz­zard and Kestrel.

4 Fi­nally, fol­low the track up the val­ley be­tween Haugh and Rudge woods with lots of pos­si­bil­i­ties, such as the res­i­dent Chaffinch, Bullfinch and all three wood­peck­ers for you to see.
