Shorebird walk at Sunderland

Winter shorebird migration is an annual spectacle, and a reminder of how important our coast is for shorebird conservation. We are ready to help you learn all about it — and enjoy it in the process. 

We will start with an indoor talk and presentation by Keith Bowey, local bird expert. After lunch (provided), we’ll head out for a two-mile walk, so please wear warm and weather appropriate clothing and outdoor suitable footwear. 

What might you see if you join us for a walk? Sanderlings, purple sandpipers, golden plovers, ringed plovers, turnstones, knots, dunlins, curlew, oystercatchers, redshank, snow buntings and more. Those are the usual suspects. You never know when a rarity might show up! 

If you have binoculars please bring them, we will have some available to borrow too. 

Booking is essential.  

This event is being delivered by Durham Wildlife Trust as part of the SeaScapes Intertidal Interactive Project.
