Black Grouse Lek & Upland Birds, Upper Teesdale

Outdoor Event, 5am-10am

Thanks to the work of the North Pennines Black Grouse Recovery Programme our region is one of the best places in England to see these charismatic moorland birds.

We will be visiting the site of a Lek (where large numbers of males try to attract females) which takes place in early morning. After watching this wonderful natural spectacle we will return to the Langdon Beck Hotel for breakfast and have a short film and talk about Black Grouse.

For those who would like to at 10am we will go on a 3 mile walk looking for breeding waders, Ring Ouzel and other upland birds.

There is a £10 charge for this event which includes breakfast at the Langdon Beck Hotel (veggie option available).

Please contact the Society Office to reserve your place. If you wish you can stay overnight at the hotel or nearby YHA and we will provide details when you book.

This event is led by Chris McCarty
