Visit Wader Lake hides and marvel at young common tern learning to fish alongside broods of regionally rare avocet and grey heron juveniles. The hide at the saline lagoon offers unique 360-degree vistas of the River Wear and surrounding wildlife – including kingfisher, roe deer and wild otter – while the meadows and woodlands are full of colourful flora.
