Cumbria is an excellent county for bird watching:
the Lake District, superb coasts and estuaries, woods and fast-flowing rivers, up to Pennine moors.
Here are some ideas on where to watch birds in Cumbria.
• Don't forget to check the tide times and weather.
The Cumbria Bird Club runs events throughout the year, conducts important survey work and produces annual bird reports. We are working on a new county avifauna based on the BTO Bird Atlas survey. Please report any sightings you've made; we'd encourage you to help out with any on-going surveys in the county.
