Introduction to Birdlife in Bradden


The aim of this site is to provide information about local birds in a readable format, and to provide a means to enable the exchange of news and views about bird related topics, together with local bird sightings.

We would hope that use of these pages will encourage anyone with a casual interest in bird-life to progress to develop a deeper knowledge or interest.

Birds you might see around Bradden

The birds that you are likely to see at any given time and in any given place is influenced by a number of factors, including:

  • Geographical location
  • Topography
  • Local habitat(s)
  • Season of the year
  • Weather
  • Exact place you are looking.

For these reasons, one can never predict exactly which bird species you will see, but a little knowledge will help to identify likely species in any given area.

Bradden may be described as a fairly typical small rural hamlet in lowland south-east midlands of England.  Its latitude is  52 degrees North, and lies between 96 and 148 metres above sea-level, and is fortunate that it does not therefore suffer extremes of climate.

For ease of reference we have divided the different habitats found within the parish into the following:

  • In or near the village
  • Fields and hedgerows
  • Woodland
  • Streams and ponds

Please refer to the Bradden Bird Table to find out which species you can find in which habitat.
