Introduction to Winter Shorebirds, Boulmer, Northumberland

Outdoor Event, 2pm-4.30pm

As high tide approaches, wading birds such as Grey, Golden and Ringed Plover, Bar-tailed Godwit, 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 and wildlife such as Red-breasted Merganser and Grey Seal.

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 wrap up for the winter weather.

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