Introduction to winter shorebirds, Boulmer, Northumberland

Sunday 13 November, 10.45am-1pm

As high tide approaches, wading birds such as plovers, godwits, Redshank, Dunlin and Knot will be pushed towards the rocky shore at Boulmer. At this time of year they will be in winter plumage and James will give you some pointers on how to identify them. We will also look for other shorebirds such as Red-breasted Merganser. This will involve a circular walk of about 2 miles, some of it along rocky shore so wear walking boots or similar. Please bring binoculars or telescopes if you have them and dress for the weather.

Meet in the main car park near the beach in Boulmer. Grid ref NU265140 or postcode for Satnav NE66 3BN.
