Ober Water

Linford Bottom to the east of the A31 is a also a popular spot for dog walkers and picnickers and can become quite overcrowded in season and on weekends.

Like Whitten Pond and Blashford Lakes the proximity to the River Avon means it is one of the only guaranteed places in the forest where you can observe Brown Hawkers, usually patrolling the tree-line to the north of the stream.
