A walk around Clennon Lakes at perhaps the very best time of year for birds. Some bird species found nowhere else in Torbay can be seen around the lakes in November including Teal, Water Rail, Snipe, wintering warblers and usually a Kingfisher or two. Learn how to identify birds by their calls and get to grips with those tricky warblers that often skulk in the reeds or scrubby areas.
