Priory Country Park

Priory Country Park is a country park located in the Newnham area of Bedford, England alongside the River Great Ouse. The park is managed by Bedford Borough Council.
The park was established after gravel extraction ended in 1977. It was officially opened in 1986 by Valerie Singleton. It covers an area of 300 acres (121 hectares), with habitats including lakes, grassland and woodland.
A total of 203 species has been recorded here, 62 of which have bred. Good passage site with arctic & black terns, waders and gulls. Breeding little egret, nightingale and rarities have included pomarine skua, red-necked phalarope, penduline Tit, radde's warbler, and yellow-browed warbler pictured.
