Country Walk Summary

Dairy House Farm near Altrincham

The surrounding land holds a variety of farmland birds including corn bunting, tree sparrow, grey partridge, lapwing, curlew, skylark and yellow wagtail. Wild bird seed mixture plots and over-wintered stubbles have been established which will provide these bird species with a much needed winter food source.
