13th January: Birdwatching at Goswick

In the last few weeks, there have been excellent numbers of seaducks off the coast of Lindisfarne NNR near Goswick. Peak counts include 540 common scoter and 29 red-throated divers in mid-December. Great views of these birds may be seen from the dunes between Cheswick and Goswick.

Some other birds you may see here include eider, oystercatcher, shag, sanderling and recently small flocks of snow bunting.
