Birding at Slaley forest.

Birding at Slaley forest.

Something of interest all year including crossbill, but probably at its best during mid May to late July. The area bordering Blanchland moor is easily accessible by car.Walking accross Blanchland moor will soon produce golden plover, curlew, red grouse,cuckoo and raptors, including merlin, honey buzzard, goshawk, and common buzzard.
The forest and clear fell areas should be checked for woodcock (dusk) and the crepuscular nightjar(above).Tawny owls can be very vocal as demonstrated below !!!

If looking for nightjar, please do not walk onto the clear fell areas ,or play sound recordings (something that seems to be on the increase) this will disturb the birds in a serious way.
