Average Birding

Beadnell Bay

A beautiful beach walk eventually leads to one of the UK's last Little Tern colonies at the Long Nanny.

Padley Gorge

A delightful walk in the woods which can have spectacular payoffs.

Farne Islands

An excellent (the best?) place to get near to Britain's cliff nesting birds.

Thursley Common

Occasional shrike haven in the A3 corridor also offers one of the better opportunities to catch up with otherwise hard to find heathland birds, as well as some seasonal specialties such as Nightjar.

Barnes WWT

A WWT reserve in TfL Zone 2. That can't possibly work, can it? Surprisingly, it can.

Oare Marshes

Either Kent's worst or best kept secret, Oare has wader quality that verges on Slimbridge levels, and a habit of producing some excellent rarities, particularly during fall passage.
