Woodland Bird Factoids

With up to 15 strikes every second the Great Spotted Woodpecker is the fastest ‘drummer’ in Europe!

One of our smallest birds with a very LOUD call is the Wren.

The Raven, largest of our corvids can now be found in some of our woodlands.

A relative newcomer to our woodlands is the Nuthatch – one of our noisiest birds! What’s a Tree Mouse – actually it’s a small brown and white bird whose real name is Treecreeper.

Long Tailed Tits build very elaborate oval nests containing over 2,500 small feathers held together with spider’s webs and dotted with lichens to act as camouflage.
