Birds of Hamsterley Forest, County Durham

Outdoor Event, 8.30am

Hamsterley Forest is the largest block of coniferous woodland in County Durham and is home to birds such as Goshawk, Crossbill and Nightjar. Durham Bird Club know this site well and Paul Anderson their Chairman has kindly invited us to join them on this visit to the woodland. On early spring mornings, male and female Goshawks display high above the forest giving a good chance to see this normally very elusive bird of prey. If the weather is suitable we will walk to a viewpoint to watch them displaying.

Meet in the car park of the Cross Keys Pub in Hamsterley Village from where we will car share to reach the final destination. Grid ref NZ115311 or postcode for Satnav DL13 3PX.

This event is led by Paul Anderson
