Wildlife Sightings

This table will be updated with local sightings of wildlife that people have made in and around the Fauna Nature Reserve and Fairfield Orchard, including Flora, the fields on the far side of Lucy Brook. It is intended to act as a useful summary for all visitors, and as a learning resource for our schools and youth groups. If you spot anything that may be interest, we would be grateful if you could post a comment to the Wildlife Blog

Note: All photos and media files included below are provided under the Wikipedia Commons Licence - clicking each source file will link to the original file and author attributes on Wikipedia - further details on individual birds can be found on the excellent RSPB site. If you would like to see photos of wildlife taken around the reserve, these can also be viewed in the Wildlife album in our gallery.
