Over-wintering wildfowl on Stocks Reservoir

Over-wintering wildfowl on Stocks Reservoir

Stocks Reservoir,  the mixed woodland and the surrounding farmland  and moor of the water catchment area provide an  important habitat for a wide range of wildlife. On the reservoir itself, large numbers of wildfowl and wading birds may be seen with occasional rare and unusual seasonal visitors. A hide for bird-watchers is situated near the car-park at the site of the former Dalehead Church.  More Information about birdwatching around Stocks Reservoir and Gisburn Forest and reports of recent sightings are available on the "East Lancashire Birding" website.
