Five early risers met Derek Cooper at the Barff car park at 6.30. Derek very kindly showed us around the area. Here are his bird notes:
- 1 Whitethroat along the Bypass Trail. Another on Barff Lane. Yellowhammer at feeders in the main Car Park.
- 1 Garden Warbler, 3 Willow Warbler, 6 Chiffchaff and over 12 Blackcap. A little concerned by lack of Spotted Flycatchers and Garden Warblers
- Nuthatch, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Blackbird, Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush, Robin, Wren, Dunnock, Treecreeper, Great, Blue, Coal and Long Tailed Tit. Pheasant, Crow, Stock Dove and Wood Pigeon.
We would like to thank Derek for kindly showing us around the various parts of the woodland and telling us about its wildlife.
