KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1

The har­bour it­self is a good van­tage point for gulls – as well as oc­ca­sional dol­phins if you’re lucky – and you can’t miss the con­fid­ing Eiders.

In spring and early sum­mer, the Kit­ti­wakes and neigh­bour­ing Ful­mars at Braid­carr Point are easy to watch, as are Grey Herons and Cor­morants on the rocks by the Pow­der House. Auks and Arc­tic Terns can of­ten be en­coun­tered, given the prox­im­ity to their nest­ing sites on the Farnes. Later in the sum­mer and au­tumn, this is a great spot for a va­ri­ety of waders, with pas­sage birds join­ing the res­i­dents. Also keep an eye out for Rock Pipit and Goosander.

Hav­ing crossed the golf course, you should now fol­low the rocky shore round Snook or North Sun­der­land Point to the beach, while look­ing out for San­der­ling, Ringed Plover and Pur­ple Sand­piper.
