The Alex West hide will be closed for a school visit from 10am until 2.30 pm on Monday, 9th June. The woodland hide will remain open. We’re sorry for any temporary inconvenience.
The Conservation Group is pleased to announce that the Northumbria Bird Ringing Group will be visiting the Reserve on the first Saturday of each month from November 2018 until April 2019 inclusive. They will be catching birds in both feeding stations but will be ringing the birds in the Woodland hide.
They will be ringing from 8 a.m. until around noon, please note that the Alex West hide will be closed during these times.
This is important scientific work which helps us understand, for example, how populations of birds change, their migration patterns, breeding success or failure. If you want to find out more and see birds very close up, go along to the Woodland hide and talk to the ringers, you will be very welcome.
The first ringing session will be on Saturday, November 3 rd . If it is raining or very windy the session may not take place.
