Best to park in the National Trust car park with trees all around you where you can listen for warblers and look out for tit flocks, depending on the time of the year that you visit the area.
Head north, passing a large flush which has some interesting dragonflies before heading up the steep steps in the direction of Bowder Crag.
The views up here are breathtaking, with the chance of some great birds floating by. Watch your step on some of the tricky parts of the path.
You are now halfway between Borrowdale and Watendlath. Check out the small slate quarries for ferns, reptiles and the odd Wheatear.
Drop down the path into Frith Wood looking for flycatchers, woodpeckers and warblers. The damp conditions give you plenty of ferns and lichens to look for.
Follow the path along the road looking into the River Derwent for the classic waterbirds like Dippers and Grey Wagtails. Cross back up the path for the Bowder Stone and back to the car park.
