Barnwood Arboretum & Nature Reserve


In the Big Garden Birdwatch on 26thJanuary 2019 we saw:

Blackbirds, Blue Tits, Carrion Crows, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Dunnock, Goldcrest, Goldfinches, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Great Tits, Greenfinches, Long Tailed Tits, Magpies, Mallards, Mistle Thrush, Moorhens, Robins, Woodpigeons and Wrens.

Great spotted woodpeckers are regularly seen in the park and arboretum. In 2017 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 in December 2017 and were often seen (and heard!)on top of one of the giant redwoods.


Although a kingfisher was regularly seen along the brook we have not heard of any sightings since last spring/summer. Please let us know if you have seen one recently.

A little egret and a heron are regular visitors to the brook.
