Autumn wildlife at Coughton Court

Grey Wagtail perching on branch in lake at Coughton Court, Warwickshire

Due to the variety of habitat, from woodland to meadow, river to lake and the mature trees dispersed around the well maintained grounds, the diversity of wildlife is fantastic.

Most of the geese have now flown off to their next destination but there are still lots of ducks.  We also have a heron who lives around the lake, sheep in the fields and chickens in the run. Butterflies are enjoying the flowers especially on sunny days There are so many smaller birds as well. How many can you spot?
