Raptor watching on Corney Fell

Season:Summer
Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:Nature 'wows'

Corney Fell is the perfect place to put your eyes to the skies and look for birds of prey, so don’t forget your binoculars. On a clear day you can see for miles, with nature taking first place on the aural agenda, only hearing the distant hum of an occasional vehicle. Birds such as Hen Harrier, Buzzard, Peregrine Falcon and Ravens hang in the sky. With commanding views of the Duddon estuary, why not bring a picnic too? Please be aware that even in summertime, the heat can dissipate quickly to bring a cool wind so remember to bring sufficient warm clothing.
