Snipe Dales Country Park - Lusby
This large country park provides varied habitats and is rich in wildlife. The coniferous trees in the wooden areas are gradually being replaced by deciduous species and in the Spring these woods are alive with birdsong. A multitude of small birds includes treecreeper, goldcrest, finches (various species) wren, long-tailed tit and greater spotted woodpecker and this abundance of “ready meals” ensures that sparrowhawks and kestrels are never far away! The wet valleys, grassland and scrub land provide living quarters for mice and voles which in turn attract Tawny owls and Barn Owls. The area known as Furze Hill is a paradise for many different species of butterfly.
