Dunnock wood holds an excellent variety of woodland birds

A superb birding location at any time of the year, but especially April-May. The Estate covers some 3,000 acres and is run as a commercial farming and forestry enterprise.
There are five colour coded walks, which take you along a variety of routes through the Estate. One takes you by the Hirsel lake, which is one of the largest manmade expanses of water in the area and provides habitat for a variety of wildfowl whilst the woodland has many of the breeding species found at locations further south.There is a hide situated on the bank of the lake which allows good views of the lake and surrounding area.
The famous Dundock Wood with its kaleidoscopic colouring and breathtaking scents from the collection of rhododendron and azalea's, has breeding Redstart, Pied and Spotted Flycatcher, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Marsh Tit and the illusive Hawfinch.this wood being at its best in April / May.
There are toilets, a cafe and gift shop.Click here for The Hirsel web Site.....
