If you received a wildlife guide or a pair of binoculars for Christmas, Rawcliffe Meadows is a handy place to hone your identification skills. From the boundaries of the Cornfield you can see many farmland birds including Tree Sparrow, Reed Bunting, Yellowhammer and various finches. Can you tell a Stock Dove from a Woodpigeon or a Feral Pigeon? The Cornfield provides you with the ideal chance to try! The hedgerows and copses around the site provide opportunities to spot tits, thrushes, Treecreeper and Great Spotted Woodpecker. More unusual birds recently seen on the Meadows include Snipe and Water Rail. As well as birds, our resident Roe Deer are remarkably easy to see and Foxes are often active in broad daylight.
