Site Details

Quiet site (except on some weekends) of mixed deciduous woodland, one large lake, two smaller ponds, open grassland and scrub and some heathland (gorse, silver birch etc.). The site is approximately half a mile square, rising up from just north of the line of the Uxbridge Road to the south. Forms part of a wider rural and semi-rural area bounded to the north by the Grim's Dyke that includes Belmont Golf Course, Stanmore Country Park and Common, Harrow Weald Common and the farmland south of Old Redding.

Key Areas / Routes

Summerhouse Lake, scrub to north-west of site (sit at the top of the ridge near the gun implacement and scan the treetops for raptors etc. and the sky overhead for passage migrants). The areas of rabbit-eaten grass look promising for Ring Ouzel but I am not aware of any recent sightings.
