North Pennine Birdwalks 13:
Howden Burn (Weardale)
Passing through grassland and up onto heather moorland, this 3km/3.6 mile (in total) walk provides splendid views across the open uplands and down to the Bollihope Burn. It is a fine area to watch wading birds during the breeding season when the air is filled with their songs and displays. Redstart, great spotted woodpecker, tits and warblers can also be seen or heard in the riverside woodland.
