In line with Government advice, the Great Park currently remains open for you to take essential exercise, if you live locally. (You shouldn’t travel outside of your village, town or area of the city you live in).
A progressive independent commercial business, created by Act of Parliament. Our portfolio includes the whole of Regent Street and much of St James’s in London’s West End, prime regional shopping centres, Windsor Great Park, rural land and coastline, and the UK’s seabed.
Whether you are a keen ornithologist, a casual bird-watcher or somewhere in between, Windsor Great Park has much to offer around this vast natural landscape.
The ancient trees within the Park provide a variety of habitats, offering ideal nesting sites for a number of interesting birds - including Tawny and Barn Owls, and the Greater and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. Or if you are interested in ground nesting species such as Nightjars and Dartford Warblers, the rich heathland of Swinley Forest - part of the Thames Valley Special Protection Area - is a prime location in which to spot them.
There is also a great deal of bird life to be seen in our wetland habitats. Herons can often be seen on the lake at Virginia Water – and Mandarin Ducks, Coots and Kingfishers can be found in the southern streams that feed into it. The occasional Bittern is also known to visit the reeds, while Egyptian Geese flock to the Great Park in Winter.
