Birds at the Three Sisters
A walk round the Three Sisters is an excellent way to see many birds and to learn to recognize them. The lake is near the car park and this is a good place to start. Here you will see coot, mute swans, Canada geese, water hens, mallard and cross-bred ducks. Common gulls and black headed gulls fly around the lake sharing the food that visitors have thrown for the ducks. In the spring there are often baby chicks to be seen. The coot like to nest on the floating islands and the ducks nest all over the place. This spring  we had our first nesting swans for over ten years.
The Bird Feeding Station is a short walk from the lake. If you spend some time at the bird feeding station you could see some of our more unusual birds. From October to early spring the Friends put our food every day and this encourages quite a variety of birds. Most of these are common garden birds but we do get the occasional rarer visitors. You should see robins, Blackbird, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Great Tit, Willow Tit, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Greenfinch, Jay, Magpie, Wren and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
