Birds

The New Forest’s varied mix of broad-leafed and coniferous woodland, open heathland and its 26 miles of coastline mean that the diversity of bird species in the area is huge and there is always an interesting avian challenge to seek out in any month of the year. Our 100+ resident species are augmented by migrating visitors from the south in summer and from the Arctic in winter. Rarities like Goshawk, Honey Buzzard and Dartford Warbler are among the species which birdwatchers always hope to see on a visit to the forest. More information on what to see where can be found here.
