Barnwood Arboretum & Nature Reserve


 In the Big Garden Birdwatch January 2018 we saw:

Blackbirds, Blue Tits, Carrion Crows, Dunnock, Goldfinches, Great Tits, Greenfinches, House Sparrow, Kingfisher, Lesser Black Backed Gulls, Long Tailed Tits, Magpies, Mallards, Moorhens, Robins, Wood Pigeons and Wrens.

Thanks go to all who braved the weather to help look for birds.


Great Spotted Woodpeckers are regularly seen in the arboretum. Last year woodpeckers nested in a willow tree in the park.
Green woodpeckers have been spotted occasionally in recent months.
A pair of ravens started visiting the arboretum late last year and are often seen (and heard!)on top of one of the giant redwoods.
A kingfisher has been sighted by many people and two kingfishers were seen on the fence by the wildlife pond in December 2017. A little egret has been visiting the brook again and was seen several times in December and January.
