Welcome to Birdwatch North East

Birdwatch North East (formerly Birdwatch Northumbria) introduces the birdlife of Northumberland and the North East England. We run tours with friendly guides who share their knowledge of local birds with infectious enthusiasm. Our strength is the personal guidance we provide in small groups and the illustrated presentations that accompany each event.


Ours tours are suitable for beginners and experienced birders alike.

Northumberland is one of Britain's richest wildlife regions. As well as birds, look out for an impressive range of mammals, we have Roe Deer, Otter, Grey Seal, Wild Goat and the endangered Red Squirrel. 

Enjoy our wonderful scenery and wide open spaces.

Experience a sense of wilderness in the Cheviot Hills or on an empty Northumberland beach. Come and see for yourself with Birdwatch North East?
