All significant birdwatching areas in the region are analysed under the headings 'Habitat', 'Timing', 'Sites', Access' and 'Calendar', providing all the information necessary to make the most of each and every trip, whatever the time of year. Birds that have been seen nesting include the Dartford warbler, identified by its distinctive red-eye ring.
