The long list of birds to be found in Bushy Park includes all three native woodpeckers, kestrel, tawny owl and a range of waterfowl.

Kingfisher can often be seen or heard along the banks of the Longford River and the various ponds and lakes in Bushy Park - their brilliant blue plumage is a stunning sight.

Of particular importance are a number of ground-nesting birds like skylark, reed bunting, meadow pipit and stonechat. All four of these species are of conservation concern in the UK. Unwitting walkers or dogs easily disturb ground-nesting birds among the grass.
