1 Paddocks and hedgerows by the village should hold a numbers of common breeding birds, including finches, tits, corvids, Pied Wagtail, Green Woodpecker and Stock Dove. Swallow and House Martin breed.
2 The track passes along a woodland edge overlooking farmland suitable for Redlegged and Grey Partridges, Buzzard, Hobby, Kestrel, Turtle Dove, Sky Lark, Whitethroat, Linnet and Yellowhammer. The wood holds a range of smaller birds, including Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Jay, Goldcrest, Blackcap and also Chiffchaff. 3 Riparian birds abound along the riverside walk with summer visiting Sedge and Reed Warblers competing in song with Goldfinch and Reed Bunting. On the river look out for Kingfisher, Little Grebe, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Cetti’s Warbler and Grey Wagtail, while Barn Owl hunt here at dusk.
4 A good spot for Lesser Whitethroat and Whitethroat, and maybe a Willow Warbler in and around the apple orchards. Greenfinch and Bullfinch are present, while adjacent thickets attract a few Nightingales, so listen for them.
