Northumberland Coast
There are fewer more wild and unspoilt parts of Britain than the Northumberland Coast and winter brings divers, rafts of Eider and Long-tailed Duck while Twite and Short-eared Owls can be seen along the dunes.
There are few more wild and unspoilt parts of Britain than the Northumberland coast and winter brings rafts of Eiders, Long-tailed Duck plus Common and Velvet Scoters while Twite, Snow Bunting and Short-eared Owls can be seen along the dunes. We will spend three full days exploring the best sites, both coastal and inland, along this magnificent stretch of coastline from Lindisfarne NNR to Druridge Bay. Sea-watching can be particularly rewarding with all three divers, Slavonian Grebes and Little Auks regularly appearing while the shorelines are wintering grounds for multitudes of waders including Purple Sandpiper. Winter brings Pink-footed Geese, Whooper Swans and pale-bellied Brent Geese and the whole coastline is ideal hunting ground for Peregrine and Merlin. In addition this area regularly hosts an array of scarce species including Red-necked Grebe, Lapland Bunting and Glaucous Gull. We will be based for four nights at the top quality and perfectly positioned Doxford Hall Hotel.
