Home Ed Seabirds

Come and learn about seabirds, and see the Little Terns at Seaton Carew.

A fun, seabird themed session for Home Educated children aged 5 to 11. Join us to learn about our special seabird visitors, the Little Terns, and make some Little Tern crafts to take home. 

The Little Tern, one of Britain’s rarest sea birds has taken a liking to the sands of Seaton Carew, and returns annually in May from West Africa to nest and raise their chicks on the north east coast, with the potential of returning to Africa in September with the next generation. 

See first-hand how the SeaScapes project is supporting Durham Wildlife Trust’s wardening and monitoring of the internationally important breeding colony of Little Terns at Crimdon and Seaton Carew. 

Booking is essential. 

Parking is available at the Car and Coach Park, and costs £2. Please wear weather appropriate clothing and suitable footwear. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
