In Mortimer Country with a wonderful variety of habitats for birds offers many opportunities for you to enjoy fresh air and tranquillity in stunning countryside.

Ancient forests; hanging oak woodlands; water meadows and remnants of glacial lakes together with uplands gently rising into Wales and Offa's Dyke all provide habitats for resident and migratory birds.

Sitting quietly by pools or walking the water meadows beside the Rivers Teme, Clun and Lugg it is not unusual to see teal, grey and yellow wagtails, dipper,  sand martin, little egret, kingfisher , heron and goosa nder. Osprey and Marsh Harrier can be glimpsed following the River Teme on their spring and autumn migratory journey. 

As the day light lengthens a profusion of resident and migratory birds (including redstarts and pied flycatchers) can be spotted along byways, trails and woodland glades.  Resident birds of prey, red kite, sparrow hawks and buzzards may be seen close to the ancient forests and oak woodlands or hunting over meadows. www.herefordshirewt.org.uk has details of the lovely Clay Vallet Wood close to Lingen; Croft Castle has a spectacular ancient Parkland Walk.  On managed trails and open scrub in the Mortimer Forest can be seen, siskin, crossbill, jay, and greater spotted woodpecker, coal tits and at dusk nightjar.
