BIRDWATCHING ON THE NORTHUMBERLAND COAST, by Tom Cadwallender. Published by Northumberland Coast AONB Partnership. £7.95. Softback.

THE second edition of this informative guide offers advice on when to go birdwatching on the coast and where to find the best locations around Druridge Bay, the Coquet estuary and Coquet Island, Alnmouth, Boulmer, Craster, Low Newton, Beadnell Bay, the Farne Islands, Holy Island, Cocklawburn and the Tweed estuary.
Every year thousands of birds make their way to this coastline either to breed, to over-winter or just stop to feed and rest during their migrations. The book contains a month-by-month guide on birds to look out for.
