In The Peak District

The Peak District boasts a wide diversity of scenery and habitat and this makes Derbyshire an ideal place for birds and bird watching. The diverse habitats range from high peat bogs to grit-stone edges, heather and heath to moorlands, and from dales and river valleys to ancient and new woodland with large areas of pasture and industrial areas too. Gravel pit workings in the south of the Peak District have created marsh and reed bed areas which are habitats for wildfowl, waders and warblers. The reclamation of old colliery spoil heaps in the northeast has created several new nature reserves and woodland areas and old railway lines and cuttings such as the Monsal Trail have been reclaimed creating trails with diverse habitats. The abundance of varied habitats accounts for the richness and variety of the bird watching in the Peak District. Above all, bird watching in the Peak District can be an excellent challenge at any time of the year, with the possibility of encountering a wide range of species.
