Lindley Wood area -Tawny Owl, Chiffchaff. Gt Crested Grebe, 13 Oystercatches plus the usual Blue, Great and Coal Tits, however we did find two pair of Long Tailed Tits making nests one at the beginng and the other at the end of the wood before pack horse bridge, this is where we found the Chiffchaff after hearing it call, it took a bit of finding as it was quite active
