Birds to be seen
Blue Tits, and Great Tits have nested in the trees and bird boxes, Long Tailed may often be seen foraging in the bushes, and are easily identified by their long tail, their noisy cheeping, and their total disregard of you standing nearby

On summer days listen for the call of the Yellow Hammer, and look for this bright yellow bird, perched conspicuously on a high branch.

Green Woodpecker and Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers are common around the village, as are Magpies, Rooks, Crows and Jackdaws.

In the winter when the grass is short, flocks of small birds, Finches, or Starlings, Field-fares and Red-wings, may be seen foraging for food on the ground.

That favourite, the Robin is to be seen, easily identified by its red breast.

Up in the sky, Red Kites or Common Buzzards are sometimes to be seen in the area. Kites are more often seen around their stronghold along the Chilterns around Thame.

Kestrels are more common, often to be seen hovering, head into the wind, looking for voles, mice, to swoop down on and catch.

The hedge betwen the Recreation ground and the Reserve, has been left especially dense, as a suitable habitat for smaller birds.

Hopefully as the pond develops it will attract different species to the Reserve.
