breeding terns northumberland
Take a stroll to the southern end of Beadnell Beach to Long Nanny and you’ll catch sight of arctic and little terns – two rare seabirds nesting in this area. The National Trust has been protecting this nationally important breeding site since 1977, which has seen numbers of these species increase year on year. Rangers monitor Long Nanny during the breeding season and visitors are welcome to see the birds nesting and feeding.
Just follow the diversion signs from the beach.
Watch the National Trust video about life at Long Nanny protecting these coastal birds.
