Birdlife Dec 30, 2014
Druridge is well-known for its birdlife and is a very popular spot for serious birdwatchers as well as those, like ourselves, who just enjoy seeing and photographing birds without really knowing a lot about them! There is a good variety of habitats, from woodland and scrubby to freshwater ponds, reed-beds and of course the beach and dunes.

If you are serious about this pursuit, take your binoculars and head to one of the hides on the nature reserves at Cresswell Pond, Druridge Pools or Low Hauxley (at the northern end of the bay). A bit of patience will surely see you rewarded, in winter especially. For instance, the Northumberland Wildlife Trust report 89 species sighted in October 2014. These include eight species of goose and two of swans, a large variety of ducks and gulls, owls and many smaller birds such as stonechat, blackcap, redwing, bullfinch, chiffchaff, fieldfare, coal tit and very many more.

Even without trying, we saw a cute stonechat near Druridge Pools and black-headed gull, swans, coots, moorhens, wigeon, mallards, Canada and Greylag geese at Ladyburn Lake.
