Saturday 20 September, 6.40am-10am.
Leaders: Jimmy Steel & South Tyneside Coastal Conservation Group.
We will be joining the bird ringers at Whitburn Coastal Park observatory to watch them in action and learn about their work. This stretch of coastline has an enviable reputation for migrant birds with Pallas’ Grasshopper, Greenish, Barred, Arctic and Yellow-Browed Warblers all seen last autumn! We will be mainly searching for migrant passerines but will also try our luck with seabirds if the weather conditions are good.
Meet at Whitburn Coastal Park car park, signed off A183 – turn right after entrance and drive to southern end of road (grid ref NZ410635).
