1 From Mordiford, take the Wye Valley Walk and check the old farm buildings as you pass but also be aware that there may be cattle. Check for House Sparrow and a possible Tree Sparrow, Little Owl, Barn Owl and Collared Dove and House Martin and Swallow at the right time. Blackbirds and Woodpigeons will be seen on most of the walk.
2 Then try the valley with Robin, Wren, Fieldfare, Kestrel, Mistle Thrush, Sky Lark and with late Swifts up in the sky. 3 Check the little reserve area for Jay, Siskin, Nuthatch, Goldcrest, Pied Flycatcher, Chiffchaff and Blackcap. You may see a Green Woodpecker.
4 Now up through the woodland where there should be Treecreeper, Nuthatch, Great and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Tawny Owl and hunting Sparrowhawk.
5 And finally down through the open area and check the stream and scrubs and hedges for Dipper, Yellowhammer, Greenfinch, Dunnock and Pied Wagtail.
