Gosforth Park

A recent visit to Gosforth Park reserve of the Natural History Society , although it was quiet I enjoy the walk around in the blustery day ever conscious  of the falling  small twigs and Acorns . Three Jays glimpsed a party of about 15 Long tailed Tits along the board-walk c60 Wigeon and 6 Little Grebes from the hide . At the feeding station Treecreeper  Nuthatch and a pair of Great Spotted Woodpeckers along with Blue,Cole , and Great Tit oddly only one Chaffinch around I 'm sure that will have changed by my next visit.
Membership of the Society is required to visit the reserve, contact the office in the Hancock Museum Newcastle.

Nice shots - I just joined the Natural History Society on Monday and made my first visit to the reserve on Tuesday in my lunch break. Didn't get as far as the lake but the feeding station and the woods were absolutely buzzing. Really looking forward to a proper visit sometime soon.

Hi and thanks its a good place to call in, probably not practical to get to the lake in a lunch break ,but the feeding station will attract more and more birds over the winter.
