Country Walk Summary

East Cramlington (Site E) near Cramlington

This small nature reserve is easily accessed from a lay-by on the road side. The site of a former brickworks is now a tranquil haven for many wetland creatures and plants. The ponds are particularly good for toads and newts. Dragonflies such as common hawker and ruddy darters, and azure damselflies are common here. Water birds such as moorhen utilise the secluded areas of rush and reed. The scrub woodland has developed over the past few years providing home for many common woodland birds.
