Bird 1 Friends of Ingrebourne Valley and Hornchurch 
 Country Park 
 The valley, park and river are fantastic places to spend 
 your leisure time, whether you are walking your dog, 
 riding your bike, having a picnic or just taking a leisurely walk in the park. These are great places to do a spot of bird watching and to listen to their wonderful songs, look at the wild flowers and historic artefacts, use the outdoor gym equipment and try to get fit or just relax in the peaceful atmosphere.Spitfire 1

We have to protect and look after these areas to ensure that they will be there for future generations to enjoy.
