Winter Sea Birds at Ross Back Sands, Northumberland

Outdoor Event,11.30-2.00pm
The beautiful bay just south of Holy Island is one of the best places in the North East for wintering sea birds.

We should see Long-tailed Duck, Slavonian Grebe and Red-throated Diver and with a bit of luck Great Northern and Black-throated Divers and Red-necked Grebe.

We should also see wading birds pushed up the beach at high-tide and perhaps some wintering passerines. This will involve a walk of around 3.5 miles and also standing around looking out to sea, so please come dressed for the winter and bring a telescope if you have one.

Meet in the car parking area alongside the road just before the village of Ross (grid ref. NU369132), which is 3 miles north east of the A1 from Belford via minor roads. Postcode for Satnav NE70 7EN.

This event is led by James Littlewood
