Hill is a ridge overlooking the Thames and its nature reserve is an excellent
place for bird watchers.
The reserve has the one of the largest heronries
in the UK and also contains a diversity of woodland birds. Look out for the stunning
display of springtime wild flowers.
Ancient woodlands are great places to watch wildlife
especially birds and mammals such as deer and wild boar.
- Get out and about in spring woodlands for birds of
prey, badger watching and wild walks.
