Field trips are organised, usually monthly. Locations for field trips can be any of:
- Local boat trips to see seabirds
- Lakes, estuaries, bays, mudflats and foreshore for waterfowl and waders
- Coastal headlands for migrants on passage, divers, grebes, seaduck and seabirds
- Woodland for early morning birdsong
- Inland valleys and hills for passerine and other species
Occasionally we go further afield - e.g. a recent weekend to the Cairngorms for Capercaillie and Crested Tit and other Scottish birds.
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.
