Bothal Pond

Bothal pond is an area of fresh water caused by mining subsidence lying close to the A197 Ashington to Morpeth road. To view the largest pond at Coney Garth, visitors should take the adjacent minor road to the village of Bothal and park by the side of the road. Excellent views north over the water can be had from the hedgerows here.
Resident birds include a good range of common wildfowl and waders, breeding great-crested grebe and there is always a chance of a rarity such as great northern diver in 2012, Black-winged pratincole, great white egret 2015. Further along this minor road lies the village of Bothal.On reaching the village, the road is disected by Bothal burn lying in a straight line between the road and woodland. This is a super reliable spot for common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis).
