Mistle Thrushes contribute to the spring soundscape and can often be seen here
Thursday 21st April, 2022
Although Whiteknights Park today is abutted by suburban housing, and has been hugely developed, a great area remains a wildlife-friendly oasis, because of the presence of water, mature specimen trees, and wilder areas. A variety of breeding water birds can be seen quite close to, while the woodland and arboretum areas echo to a variety of song: in April thrushes, wrens, nuthatches and woodpeckers are all very evident, as are the newly arrived warblers. And there can be a few surprises too. This is an easy walk, but some paths can be muddy.
Meet at 10 a.m. at the Pepper Lane entrance (SU733 714, RG2 7DN, ///grand.admiral.racks)
