10th December: Winter bird highlights

A flock of 500 Lapwing have been seen at Fenham Flats recently - if you visit our hide at Fenham-Le-Moor, signposted off the A1, you might spot them.

Another fantastic highlight has been a group of 20 Snow Bunting, seen on the North shore of Holy Island on several occasions, flitting around the beach. These winter visitors are striking birds, with a beautiful 'snowy' plumage.
