Places to see birds

South Gare

The mixture of rough ground, sand dunes, tidal mud flats and both freshwater and saltwater pools make this a good spot for watching birds, if somewhat exposed in poor weather (though the access road allows for viewing on both sides from the comfort of your car).
Access is via the coast road to the west of Redcar, past the entrance to Coatham Marsh and along Todd Point Road. South Gare's bird list of 260+ is the best for any site in the region.
