Wild Birds

Although there are many birds to be seen in the Summer, the Winter brings in the wintering wild fowl. Ducks, Geese, Grebes, Cormorants, Herons, Lapwings, Oyster Catchers, Redshanks, Plovers, Snipes, Curlews, to name but a few, can all be found here.

On quiet sunny days in Spring, the silence is often broken by the sounds of the Skylarks as they call their songs from the heavens.

In the reeds down in the marsh, reed bunting are found darting in and out. On rare occasions, the Kingfisher can be found resting on a reed at the edge of a pool, over by another pool a Heron stands motionless, poised and awaiting its opportunity.

During the Spring the estuary supports two or three families of Swans often seen accompanied by their young.

From time to time, Kestrels are seen hovering, waiting to pounce on a poor unsuspecting young rabbit or mouse. Sparrow Hawks, Merlins and Buzzards are often seen.
