This is a fantastic opportunity to see this private nature reserve on the edge of Newcastle, which is one of the best wildlife watching sites in the area. Our 2020 Open Days will take place on the following dates:

  • Saturday 25 April, 10.30am-3.30pm
  • Saturday 18 July, 10.30am-3.30pm

Local experts will be on hand to talk to visitors about birds, plants, mammals and insects. There will be pond dipping, small mammals, wildlife spotting from hides and much more (sorry no dogs).

Please note that the ground can be wet, muddy and uneven, so please wear suitable footwear.
