NT Clumber Park

National Trust Clumber Park is in Nottinghamshire and comprises a range of habitats, including lakes and rivers, deciduous, coniferous and mixed woodlands, farmland, scrub, heath and marsh, which mean it is great for wildlife.

In the spring, among the resident species there are returning summer visitors - such as the Cuckoo, Yellow Wagtail and warbler species. An early morning start provides an opportunity to experience the build-up of the dawn chorus, but also a chance to see 60-70 species in the day.

In the summer, things have generally quietened down as most species are breeding, but at night-time you can watch and listen to Nightjars, Woodcock and owls among the woodland clearings.

In the autumn, passage migrants and returning wildfowl and winter thrushes are the main attractions.

Hawfinches are resident all year round at Clumber Park but are rarely seen as they spend their time in the canopy. However, wintertime is the time to see them, when the trees have shed their leaves, and around the Chapel is the best area as this includes hornbeam trees, which provides one of its favourite foods. Woodlarks are present all year round too and Clumber is more or less at the northern limit of their range.

During the winter months, some of the more timid woodland birds, like Willow and Marsh Tit, are often easily seen too - especially if you offer them some bird seed!

Below is a list of species I have observed on visits at different times of the year.
