Question North East of England – Northumberland, County Durham, Tyne and Wear, and Tees Valley

We are creating the definitive list of top birding sites in UK and Ireland.

Here are the nominations so far for North East of England.

EDITED

Northumberland = Cresswell Pond
County Durham = TBA
Tyne and Wear = TBA
Tees Valley = TBA

NB. Is this the correct break up of the North East?

Please feel free to post your comments or counter proposals.

Judging by this year, Cresswell pond in Northumberland has turned up some cracking birds and definately gets my vote!

Big Waters has some remarkable sightings this year including Turtle Doves and Osprey. But Saltholme is amazing it has to be said,
