Seabird migration at Church Point, Newbiggin-by-the-sea

Outdoor Event, 5.45pm-7pm

Shearwaters, terns, skuas, gannets and petrels pass offshore at this time of year and Church Point, Newbiggin is one of the best places to try and see them if the weather is right. Expert seawatcher Jimmy Steel will help to point out the birds as they pass and offer tips on identification. There is also a chance to see seals and wading birds. We will mainly be seated or standing without cover or shelter so please wear suitable clothes. You will need binoculars and if you have a spotting scope then bring it with you. Meet outside the gate to St Bartholomew’s Church at Newbiggin point (grid ref NZ318 880). There is car parking at the point.

This event is led by Jimmy Steele
