POINTS OF INTEREST ALONG THIS WALK

The Tree Creeper

The down curved bill of the treecreeper makes this bird unmistakeable. Look out for it in woodlands, literally 'creeping' around the tree trunks. Click the image to discover more about the The Tree Creeper Image - Harry Hogg

The Glebe Road Pillbox

This is situated next to the East Coast Main Line, which it guarded during the Second World War. It is shaped like a lozenge, which was a design of a pillbox only found in the North-East.

The Great Spotted Woodpecker

The 'drumming' of a great spotted woodpecker is a familiar sound of our woodlands. It is a form of communication and is mostly used to mark territories and to display in spring. Image - Mike Snelle
