Key Areas / Routes

Three reservoirs lie north of the road and seven to the south. North of the road generally the Lockwood usually produces the rarer birds. Migrants also favour it more, with flocks of wagtails, pipits and wheatears present in spring and autumn. South of the road the East Warwick and No 5 are also most productive. But all reservoirs should be checked as anything can be anywhere.
