KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 This is a pic­turesque walk, with the chance of leap­ing Salmon in the au­tumn. The area is rich in his­tory, with the au­tumn colours adding to the beauty.

2 Walk up to the falls look­ing out for those dis­tinc­tive wa­ter birds found in fast wa­ter. Spend time watch the wa­ter for a leap­ing Salmon.

3 Scan the clear fell across the wa­ter for a call­ing Cuckoo or a dis­play­ing Tree Pipit in spring. As the veg­e­ta­tion grows up even owls will feed here.

4 De­spite the firs, oaks grow along the river, so look out for Red­start and Pied Fly­catcher and tit flocks mov­ing through.

5 When you reach the bridge scan for wa­ter birds again and scan the sur­round­ing area for rap­tor move­ment.

6 If you don’t want to re­turn the same way you can fol­low the trail on the other side of the river.
