Sewardstone Marsh and Gunpowder Park
Sunday, 9th April
Lying just to the south of Waltham Abbey this area of the Lee Valley Regional Park holds a wide variety of habitats and thus has the potential to produce a diverse selection of wildlife. The bushes and woodland should hold a good variety of warblers and other song birds while other warblers will be found around the wetland areas. The extensive grassland areas will hold Skylarks with the possibility of migrants like Wheatears and Whinchats while there should be Swallows, martins and Swifts overhead. There is always the chance of seeing a Kingfisher flashing past and waders such as Green or Common Sandpipers could be on the flood relief channel. Birds of prey likely to be seen include Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and even Common Buzzard. Given a sunny morning there should be a good number of butterflies in evidence and there will be a variety of wildflowers on show whatever the weather.
