Prestwick Carr

A low-lying area of farmland with extensive areas of wet and semi-wet grassland, ditches, woodland and hedges. At specific sites including Big Waters and Weetslade there are reclaimed mine workings with a wide range of habitats and facilities that provide opportunities for the development of wildlife and ‘wildlife corridors’ linking habitats.
There is a hidden and diverse range of wildlife including the otter and all five native species of owl. There are also a wide range of wetland plant species and ground nesting birds such as snipe and redshank. Suburban housing around the fringes of the city and in in Wideopen, Hazelrigg, Dinnington and Ponteland. There is also a Ministry of Defence firing range within the area.
The area is perhaps best known as a regular site for wintering great grey shrike (above).
