February 2019 Newsletter


It’s a short newsletter from us this month, as the last two months have been rather quiet affairs, as is often the case with the start of the new year. A number of survey trips have been run, which you can read all about over on our website, but in the meantime we’ve been hard at work in the background, and much like the seabirds we record, we’ll slowly begin gearing up for the spring and summer months. There’ll be more surveys run, training courses to present, and of course, there’s our White-Beaked Dolphin campaign launching soon.

So be sure to stay tuned to our social media sites, and make sure you're subscribed to this newsletter, that way you won’t miss out on any news!

In Other News: Northern Experience Wildlife Tours Pelagic Trips – Book Now

If you’ve yet to make plans for the summer, and fancy a chance to get out on the water to look for marine life, then a Northern Experience Wildlife Tours Pelagic Trip may just be what you're after.

NEWT is a group we work closely with in surveying the North Sea off Northumberland, as part of the North East Cetacean Project, and they offer spaces for members of the public to come along on their boat trips.

They currently have spaces on several of their ‘4hr Evening Pelagic’ and ‘10hr Northumberland Ultimate Pelagic’ trips, which you can find more about on NEWT’s website. These trips are a great way to enjoy marine wildlife in the company of skilled and knowledgeable guides, and species sighted include Harbour Porpoise, Minke Whale, and Bottlenose and White-beaked Dolphins, plus lots of seabirds.

These trips fill up fast, so it’s advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
