Warnham LNR

If you would like to get up close and personal with the birds then Warnham LNR is the place to go. Prime location is the Woodpecker hide as copious amounts of feed are provided here and the tit flock is of serious proportions. There are Blue Tits, Great Tits, Long-Tailed Tits, Coal Tits and even Marsh Tits coming freely to the feeders which are positioned only feet from the hide.

 Plenty of finches too, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Siskin and Redpoll. Several Nuthatches regularly visit and of course the hide's namesake the Great Spotted Woodpecker. Supporting cast provided by Reed Bunting, Robin, Blackbird and Dunnock. Pheasants, Moorhens and even a Water Rail are seen regularly. Of course all this activity attracts the local Sparrowhawk who often perches above the feeders, especially if his pounce results in no kill.
