Derwent Walk Country Park including Red Kite Watch
Woodlands, riverside meadows and the Derwent Walk (a disused railway line). Served by Thornley Woodlands Visitor Centre and Swalwell Visitor Centre.
By 2009, 94 red kites had been re-introduced into Gateshead's lower Derwent Valley. Friends of Red Kites have taken on the legacy left by the Northern Kites project and now work to promote and protect these magnificent birds, encouraging local communities to enjoy and appreciate one of the most spectacular elements of our wild heritage.
