Birdwatching in the woodland at Alderley Edge, Cheshire

Birdwatching at Alderley Edge 

Take in impressive views and see the sun peeking through the trees as the leaves return after winter. Keep your eyes peeled for birds and spring flowers on a walk at Alderley Edge. Redstart, nuthatch, flycatcher and tree creeper are just a few of the woodland birds that you'll hopefully be able to spot.
