Check out the birdlife

NOVICE and experienced twitchers are invited to take a stroll around Bolam Lake.

The informal walk around the country park will be led by Richard Cansdale, who will help participants to identify the common woodland and waterside birds.

The walk, which takes place on Sunday, is suitable for young and old alike.

There is a nominal £2 charge. Walkers are advised to take binoculars and meet at the information centre at 2pm.
