Join Coast Care Project Assistant Em for a shorewatch at Stag Rocks. We'll be watching mainly for cetaceans, but in the right weather conditions it might also be possible to spot a range of seabirds, as well as other birds either moving between their foraging areas or on migration to their breeding grounds. This session will be suitable for beginners and experienced alike. If we're really lucky we could see Harbour Porpoise, Bottlenose Dolphins or maybe even a Minke Whale. There's also a chance of spotting Eider Ducks, Common Scoter, Gannets, Fulmar and possibly the odd Puffin or Guillemot. Sea watching can be very fickle though - please be aware that wildlife watching like this requires a lot of patience, and it's possible that we won't see much. 

To book your place, or for more information please contact

Please wear stout footwear and warm waterproof clothing. If you have your own binoculars or telescope, please bring them along. If not, we'll have binoculars on hand for you to borrow. Please note that there are no toilet facilities on this site.


Meet outside Bamburgh Lighthouse (The Wynding, Bamburgh, NE69 7DD). There are several free small car parks along The Wynding.
