Introduction to Winter Waders, Blyth Estuary, Northumberland

Sunday 1st November, 2.30pm-4.30pm

Despite it’s industrial setting, the Blyth Estuary is one of the most important areas along the Northumberland coast for winter wading birds. As the tide rises we will walk along the river bank to look for a selection of wading and estuary birds in winter plumage. Hopefully there will be Dunlin, godwits, plovers, Redshanks, Turnstone, Curlew and perhaps a few others. Society Director, James Littlewood, will give you pointers on how to tell the different species apart in the field. Please dress for the weather and bring binoculars or a telescope if you have them.

Meet on the riverside path adjacent to Cowley Road, Blyth, NE24 5TF (grid ref NZ298 824).
