RED SQUIRRELL
As the least densely populated county in England, Northumberland has lots of room for wildlife. Our county provides one of the last refuges for the endangered red squirrel.

BIRDLIFE
We also play host to a wide variety of birdlife including curlew, dunnock, goldcrest and skylark. A great place for birdspotting is Grindon Lough, 2 miles away, which is a birdlover's paradise.

SHEEP
And if you like your animals a little more domesticated, we have a flock of Ryeland sheep, one of the traditional British sheep breeds; and some donkeys.

KIELDER
A little further afield is Keilder Water & Forest Park site of England's largest man-made lake and home to 50% of England's red squirrel population as well as deer and many rare bird species. A specially built observatory with wheelchair access offers a great chance to view wildlife in its natural habitat.
