We have Jackdaws at Creswell Craggs and rooks a mile or so away. The Jackdaws often spar with the rooks over the village in winter and spring. There is both north and south facing cliffs with all the lime loving ferns on the north facing side and Knapweed and many others on the south facing side. In the middle there is the pond with all the action if you are there when a goose lands on the pond and rouses the native mute swans in the nesting season. In the summer the Comfrey Hums with bees with all the body markings you will ever see in one place. In the spring we have the Prunus up over the top with many early butterflies. You can poke a camera far enough into the caves for the mosses and ferns without a guided tour if you are not into history. You will need to lug a heavy battery if you want to look for bats though. Those night cams are pretty hungry!
