Field Trip to Chasewater, Staffs
Forthcoming Field Trip to Chasewater, Staffs on 17th December 2017 
The start-time for this field trip is 1000hrs in the car park on the southern shore of the reservoir.  There is a visitor centre with toilets within the car park.  The walk around the site is probably about 3 ½ miles in length. The site is located near Brownhills.  Access to the site is north off the eastbound carriageway of the A5.  If travelling along the A5 westbound, you will need to pass the site and go around the roundabout located at the # with the A452 and travel back along the A5 for about ¼ mile until you see the turning to Chasewater.  Chasewater is a canal feeder reservoir of almost 100 ha and is set in a landscape of former heath, marsh and bog and should provide a variety of bird species.  Birds which are seen here in winter include Redpoll, Siskin, Goldeneye, Goosander, Jack Snipe, Iceland and Glaucous Gull.  This site is very good for wildfowl and gulls.  Hope to see you there.  Click here to Reply or Forward 2.73 GB (18%) of 15 GB used Manage Terms - Privacy Last account activity: 10 minutes ago Details
