The Farnes & Northumberland In Early Summer

From: £Contact us

Early summer is a magical season for wildlife in Northumberland. Why not join us for some outstanding birding at a wonderful time of year and experience the other wildlife that this beautiful county has to offer?

The beginning of summer is a wonderful time for wildlife right across the British Isles, but nowhere is better than the remote and rugged coastline, the islands and the moors of Northumberland. The Farne Islands are deservedly world-famous for their accessible - even at times too friendly! - colonies of arctic terns, Sandwich terns, puffins, razorbills, guillemots, shags, fulmars, kittiwakes and eiders, and their handsome grey seals.

Nearby, Coquet Island has many of the same birds, plus the UK's only colony of the exquisite roseate tern. Elsewhere along the coast there are colonies of common and little terns, while in early summer Northumberland's inland habitats offer breeding dipper, goosander, grey wagtail, tree pipit, redstart, red grouse, spotted flycatcher and more.
