This is a lovely little bird reserve overlooking Newton Pool, a peaceful place to sit awhile and watch the birds and other wildlife and take a moment away from the bustle and noise of the rest of the world.

Literally yards from the village there's a scrape about 50-100 yards long where we got great views of good numbers of waders from snipe to ringed plovers to black tailed godwits etc etc. The pool 100 yards further on gave views of swans, herons and...More

Excellent reserve - quite small - a series of interlocking pools - looks like wardens are doing work to expand it.

I'd been visiting the area for years and didn't know it was here. If you walk behind the pub at low newton towards Embleton or from the golf club at Embleton behind the sand dunes to your left, you will follow the path to the...More

Although we are relatively new to bird watching, we found the reserve has many species to add to our knowledge. The bird hides have very useful simple guides to what birds (and otters) can be seen.

What a lovely place to visit. Near to Newton and Embleton. A walk away from the dunes and food and drink in nearby villages. A great way to experience the peace and quiet of the countryside and get some exercise as well!

As you are presumably a bird lover, I strongly recommend Budle bay. It's between Bamburgh and Belford. Plenty of free parking in a long lay by next to the bay. When the tide is out you'll see lots of lovely sea... More
