Gaunless Flatts As the name suggests, it is an area of wetland that is often flooded when the water level of the River Gaunless rises in periods of heavy rain. Birds here have included Barn Owl, Short–eared Owl, Common Snipe, Merlin & more. Best birds here include Hoopoe and Merlin. I spend most of my time here when I go out bird watching. Very Happy
