Introduction to sea-watching, Snab Point, Northumberland

Sunday 31 July, 9am-12.30pm (drop in).

Migrating seabirds such as shearwaters, gannets and skuas start to pass off our coast at this time of year. It is also a good time to see whales, dolphins and porpoise. We will scan the sea to try and spot them and give tips on how to tell the different species. This is a drop-in event so come along for as long as you like. If you have binoculars or a spotting scope then bring them with you.

Watching will take place from the headland at Snab Point, which is at the northern tip of Lynmouth Bay (grid ref NZ300 926). There is a small car park here, if it gets full then there is further parking just along the road towards Cresswell Village.

This event is part of the Big Watch Weekend.

Accompanied children 8+ welcome.

Leader: James Littlewood
