The golf course has a variety of habitats that are unusual in the region and is a favorite haunt for many species of bird. A number of areas are locally protected and managed to attract the maximum variety of biodiversity. Water birds are attracted to the lakes and a well situated bird hide looks out to some large trees where roosting herons and cormorants are usually present. The wooded areas offer a safe haven for migratory birds to rest. The variety of plants attracts insects on which the birds feed and the lakes provide water to drink. Other habitats include reed beds over one of the lakes where such rarely seen species such as Corn Crakes are often encountered on passage and the fairways themselves are attractive to species collecting invertebrates from the soil. Walk the grounds on Sunday afternoon or visit the bird hide. Tel 808-8158
