Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 From the car park cross the river bridge. There are dab­bling ducks such as Mal­lard and Teal, Mute Swans and Pied Wag­tails around for you to see.

2 Walk up to the cas­tle ru­ins and see House Spar­rows, but check them for Tree Sparrow. House Martin and Swal­low are around in the sum­mer.

3 Back down to the river and walk in a west­erly di­rec­tion. So you have river, patches of wood­land and open ar­eas. All six tits are about, and Black­bird, Song Thrush, Field­fare, Robin, Dun­nock and Wren can all be seen. Black­cap and Spot­ted Fly­catcher can be found, and Bullfinch has been recorded. Also the river en­cour­ages Dip­per with King­fisher, Goosander, grebes or Grey Heron likely.

4 Then watch the open area for Sky Lark. Buz­zard and Kestrel will be seen and it’s just pos­si­ble that you may see a Red Kite. Goshawk is in the gen­eral area so you may see one. Barn Owl is pos­si­ble.
