Jesus told his followers that they can learn about God’s love and goodness from watching birds and seeing how they are provided for. Christians throughout the ages have taken that lesson to heart, including Celtic saints like Cuthbert who was perhaps the first Briton to argue for protecting birds—like the local Eider Duck, who Cuthbert offered sanctuary to on the Farne Islands.

Come and enjoy Northumbrian birds with Mark Winter—someone who lives locally and who not only has a passion for birds but over 40 years of experience of watching them.  Discover both the rich variety of birds we have locally and the lessons they can teach us.
