Grandstand viewpoint at RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Grandstand viewpoint at RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Six cliff-top viewpoints get visitors close to the sights, sounds and smells of the nesting seabirds and give spectacular views along the coast. Three viewpoints are fully wheelchair accessible.


Northumberland Project Co-ordinator for the EU LIFE+ Little Tern Project, Chantal McLeod-Nolan, will be describing the crucial work done by the project – the first of its kind which takes action for this endearing species - its aspirations and findings. Will the project be successful in aiding the long-term recovery of little terns in the UK? Join us to find out.
