The FoGW resident bird specialist Chris Measures leads 'Bird Walks' in our wood each year. He has a keen eye and ear and guides groups to see, hear and experience the rich bird life the wood and surrounding area supports. Chris's notes relating to these walks and the birds encountered will appear here. He will also occasionally add notes relating to his own birding and wildlife experiences in our recording area.


In the notes below you can click on the name of the birds highlighted in blue to see Bird Identification page from the RSPB's website.
