Bird Watching

In spring and summer the high heather moorlands and blanket bogs are alive with the evocative calls of wading birds including golden plover, lapwing, curlew and dunlin; — black grouse dance on their leks and merlin and peregrine falcon race through the air. Pheasant, grouse, partridge, snipe, ring ouzel, heron and redshank all compete for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy a day at Low Barns Nature Reserve.
