Field Trips

Field trips are organised, usually monthly, to local bird hot spots such as Aberlady Bay, Holy Island, Druridge Bay

Everyone is made welcome on a field trip – beginner and expert, young and old, resident and visitors. All you need to bring are your binoculars, some refreshments on an all day trip, and for most trips walking boots or Wellingtons and warm waterproof clothing are recommended. Please follow the directions of the field trip Leader and comply with the Country Code. Non-members joining a field trip are asked to give a donation of £2.

Help with identification is always available on North Northumberland Bird Club field trips.

Each field trip is reported in the NNBC Newsletter.
