There is a wide variety and number of species of birds throughout the Dooks area, but in particular the migratory geese, duck and waders of the estuary, with a large variety of gulls, ravens, choughs more obvious in the air.
One of the pleasures of Dooks in the springtime is the chorus of the skylarks of which there is an abundance. Similarly overhead, hanging on air, are kestrels which come and go. The cuckoo is a regular summer visitor, as well as an invasion of swallows and sandmartins. One of the most delightful resident birds of Dooks is the stonechat which alights on the tips of the finest branches and blades of grass, croaks his song and is away again without delay. He has a dark head and white collar, reddish breast and dark back. There are also of course, large flocks of starlings and sparrows, as well as wagtails and pippets found darting after the flies.
