WAYMARKERS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1Check the church tower and trees for Col­lared Dove, Wood­pi­geon, House Spar­row – and check for Tree Spar­row. Jack­daws are around and in the sum­mer months look for hirundines.

2Along the lane check the hedges and stream for Blue, Coal, Wil­low and Great Tits, Blackbird, Wren and Dun­nock.

3Cross the open area and look for Barn Owl, Pheas­ant and Buz­zard. You may also see a hov­er­ing Kestrel, a Swift in the sky or a low fly­ing Swal­low. Red Kite is seen in the gen­eral area, so see if you can see one.

4The wood­land area has sev­eral dif­fer­ent types of trees – pines at­tract those lovely lit­tle Gold­crest, the oaks the favourite of Jays, the birch at­tracts Siskin but all have to be aware of a hunt­ing Spar­rowhawk. Some ar­eas at­tract Great Spot­ted Wood­pecker and Treecreeper and Nuthatch can also be sighted, so keep a look out.
