Map of Spade Oak Nature Reserve Our traditional New Year's morning bird watching walk around Little Marlow Gravel Pits. A level walk of around two miles, on footpaths that are often very muddy - Wellingtons strongly recommended.

Plenty of wildfowl and gulls. Expect wigeon, shoveler, gadwall and teal, with a chance of goldeneye or even goosander on this man made lake and sand spit. There is also woodland with the common woodland birds.

In 2018 there were 57 species - can we do even better this time? Click here for the 2018 bird list

New telescope, binoculars or camera for Christmas? Ideal chance to try it out!
