Wild Upper Teesdale
Black grouse, ring ousel, merlins, golden
plovers, rare wild flowers in unspoilt hay meadows and a stunning
landscape all go to make Upper Teesdale perfect
Teesdale really is a gem for wildlife watchers; large areas are so good and
so important that they are designated as National Nature Reserves. Upper Teesdale is not
only a perfect place to see black grouse in greater numbers than you
are likely to see them elsewhere in England, everywhere in spring and
summer are the evocative calls of waders such as golden plover and
curlew. There's always a chance of seeing peregrine and merlin as the
habitat in Upper Teesdale is perfect for them. There are wild, open spaces with alpine
plants found nowhere else in England; there are hay meadows full of
rare grassland plants such as globeflower; there are large stretches of
rare juniper woodland; there are truly beautiful rugged river
landscapes. Part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) - satisfaction guaranteed in Upper Teesdale even on the wildest of days!
