WAY MARK­ERS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 Wil­low Wood: It’s worth spend­ing a few min­utes in the wood, near the car park, to look for Marsh Tit, Bullfinch, Great Spot­ted Wood­pecker and maybe a Tawny Owl.

2 East La­goon: The pub­lic hide gives a good view over the la­goon and reedbeds, where Reed Bunting, Sedge War­bler and Reed War­bler are com­mon, and Wa­ter Rail is pos­si­ble. This is also the best place to look for Ot­ters. Wil­low Copse, close to the hide, is also good for war­blers.

3 River Tutt and Carr Top Farm: The site bound­ary on one side is marked by the River Tutt. You can cross the river by the farm and walk along it. Check the fields and scrub for Yel­lowham­mer, Sky Lark, Tree Spar­row and Whitethroat, among oth­ers.

4 West La­goon: The large, hexag­o­nal ac­ces­si­ble hide of­fers a va­ri­ety of views and is a good spot for waders, in­clud­ing Lap­wing, Snipe and Ringed Plover, with rarer pas­sage waders pos­si­ble in spring and au­tumn.
