A walk for inexperienced birdwatchers with the Cleeve Hill expert Arthur Ball accompanied by Gill Smith. Bird life is plentiful on the common. Skylarks nest on the ground in rough grass and can be heard singing in spring and early summer. Meadow pipits might look similar at first glance, but during their display flight they sing as they “parachute” to the ground whereas skylarks stay high up whilst singing continuously. Stonechat, linnet and yellowhammer can be seen all year round, perched conspicuously on gorse and scrub.

Please let Gill know if you would like to join this walk. 07887 675170 or  gillyliz46@gmail.com
