A wonderful wildlife journey

Have your say

YOUNG wildlife lovers will be going on a trip to a nature reserve next month.

The Phoenix group for teenagers aged between 13 and 19 meets regularly at the Saltholme reserve, on the outskirts of Hartlepool.

But on Sunday, July 15, members will be enjoying an away-day when they pay a visit to Geltsdale, in the North Pennines.

They will leave Saltholme at 9am and return by 5pm. People must book in advance for the trip in which they could get a chance to view birds of prey, meadow pipits, stonechats, swallows, wild flowers and butterflies.
