Barnwood Arboretum & Nature Reserve


In the Big Garden Birdwatch in January 2018 we saw:

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

Great spotted woodpeckers are regularly seen in the park and 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 in December 2017 and were 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 become a very regular visitor in the spring and early summer.
