KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 Walk all the way around the lake check­ing the small ar­eas of reed and the wet wood­lands.

2 Sev­eral well marked foot­paths go up through the woods above the east­ern lake shore. A full range of wood­land birds may be seen in­clud­ing Wood War­bler, Red­start, Pied Fly­catcher and Marsh Tit and even the oc­ca­sional Lesser Spot­ted Wood­pecker and Hawfinch.

3 The woods open out near the top with scat­tered bushes where Tree Pipit, Whitethroat and Gar­den War­bler may be found. There are views over the lake and town with Buz­zard and Red Kite present. Goshawk and Honey Buz­zard have been seen.

4 There are also ex­ten­sive wood­lands to the west of the lake and café sur­round­ing a large green. These should be cov­ered as they also have a typ­i­cal breed­ing bird com­mu­nity and are of­ten the best for Wood War­bler.
