Red Kite Roost

Sunday 21 January, 2:30 – 5:00pm

Join the Friends of the Red Kites for a half-mile walk to the roost viewing point. Hear about the bird’s behaviour and the reintroduction programme. Bring a torch and warm clothing.

Please meet at Spa Well Car Park (grid reference NZ 189614) at 2:30pm. To get there: coming from the direction of the A1 or Western Bypass, take the A694 signposted to Consett. After two roundabouts, take the second pull-in (NOT Swalwell Cricket Club). The walk to Nine Arches viaduct will be a gentle 30-40 minutes.
