Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1Park your car op­po­site the en­trance to the pub­lic foot­path along the side of the lake.

2Check the reeds for war­blers and buntings. An area of wil­low scrub had some ex­tra war­bler species and also mixed tits.

3Walk along the path check the veg­e­ta­tion for nest­ing birds so as not to spend too much time keep­ing them off their nests. Scan out into the lakes for hirundines, duck and also pass­ing waders.

4As you come to the end of the path check the in­di­vid­ual trees for pos­si­ble loaf­ing owls. Lis­ten for song by the wood­land. A pub­lic path drops down through the field and en­ters the wood lower down.

5If you have not been be­fore the big house and gar­dens are well worth a visit with an ar­bore­tum and a dif­fer­ent view of the lake.
