Monitoring Project Sightings

Common Snipe (Gallinus gallinus) walking on snow Wales, UK - Andy Rouse/2020VISION

Species: Birds
Location: Middle Farm

234 birds of 17 species

The high water levels in the fields were a delightful sight, but while a range of birds were recorded, it is still quiet. The highlight was a jacksnipe.

Middle Farm is viewable for the western bank of Woodwalton Fen; just follow Mason's Drove, waking straight across the reserve for the entrance. Please respect seasonal access restrictions and do not go beyond the bank top.
