Larks, Swallows and Pipits, Wrens and Allies

This is a colour coded guide to how easy it is to see these birds in and around Wanborough. Please note that many of our birds migrate and can only be seen either in the spring/summer or the autumn/winter. This means there will be something to find all year round. If you need help identifying a bird and can't find it here, then try the "Identify a bird" section on the RSPB website.
