Little terns talk

Join us for an outdoor talk about the Little Terns, one of our rarest seabirds, at Seaton Carew.

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 our local beaches, with the potential of returning to Africa in September with the next generation. 

Join us for a short walk and talk, to learn about the Little Tern, how to identify it, it’s nesting and feeding behaviour, migration patterns and more. Also, you will have a chance to 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. 

As it’s World Seabirds Day, we will also have time to look for and identify other seabirds visiting our north east coastline. 

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.
