Even Sparrows... Bird watchers


Date: Fri, 1st Nov 2024 16:00

If you don't know Alnmouth, you are in for a treat! It's one of Northumberland's prettiest coastal villages at the mouth of a small estuary that is extremely good for birds. The start of November is a great time there for seeing an impressive selection of waders, sea duck and divers, as well as being a good location for late autumn migrants like Snow Bunting, Firecrest and Woodcock. Nearby are a range of excellent birding sites that include Warkworth beach, Hauxley nature reserve and East Chevington pools. It's likely that we will spend our second day visiting some of these 'hotspots', depending on the latest bird news.

Our accommodation is a country house hotel in a superb location. It boasts great views of the North Sea as it is situated next to Alnmouth beach and the mouth of the Aln estuary. Nether Grange is owned by HF holidays and has a reputation for comfort and very good food.

The all-inclusive price is 545 pounds per person which includes 3 nights full board, accommodation and retreat fees. NB All our rooms will be ensuite and there is NO additional single room supplement.
In order to book your room, please firstly contact me about availability. You will need to send a deposit of 195 pounds which is returnable until 6 weeks before when the balance is due. 50% is refundable up until 4 weeks before, and 25% refundable until 2 weeks to go.

LOOK AT THE BIRDS retreats are special opportunities to learn in depth about birds and what they reveal about God's love. We have guided birdwatching walks suitable for complete beginners, plus a rhythm of quiet contemplative worship and reflections on some of the main birds featured in the Bible like the dove, the eagle, the raven and the owl.
