Map of Spade Oak Nature Reserve Our traditional New Year's morning bird watching walk around Little Marlow gravel pits and along the Thames. A level walk of around two miles, on footpaths that are usually very muddy - please remember to bring wellies or strong walking boots.

There should be plenty of wildfowl and gulls. Most likely are wigeon, shoveler, gadwall, teal, lapwing and snipe, with a chance of goldeneye or even goosander on this man made lake and sand spit. There is woodland with the common woodland birds.

In 2020 we saw 61 species - can we do even better this time? Click here for the 2020 report and bird list

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