Apley Woods

Birds of Apley Woods

A wide range of birds can be seen because of the varying habitats here, from the tiny Wren and rare Goldcrest, to the much larger Buzzard and Canadian Goose.

Not all these birds nest here. In summer visitors from Africa, Swallows and Willow Warblers feast on the insects that thrive in the woods and pools. In winter, the Scandinavian Siskin feeds here.

Among the resident birds the most frequently seen are Robins, Blackbirds, Blue-tits and Magpies. Though not easily seen, Woodpeckers are regularly heard.
