Wader Watch this weekend

A ‘big wader watch weekend’ is taking place on Saturday and Sunday at Druridge Bay in Northumberland.

As part of ‘Our Wetland Wildlife Weekend’ Northumberland Wildlife Trust is encouraging individuals and families to visit its coastal reserves over the weekend to see what waders and waterfowl are calling its reserves home.

Winter is a fantastic time to see birds at the coast, with amazing species including curlew, lapwing and goldeneye enjoying the British seaside weather.

The trust said: “Grab your waterproofs, fill up a flask and come and see our resident birds and migrants.”

Any and all ‘Big Wader Watch’ wildlife records should be sent to sarah.beeson@northwt.org.uk

There is a self-led event and there will be no dedicated staff on site over the weekend.
