Natural History around Teesside

Teesside, although a fairly small geographical area is very diverse in the number of wildlife habitats that it encompasses. The north sea is probably the biggest influence in what can be seen in the area. A much fuller account of the habitats in the area can be read in the excellent new book on the breeding birds of the Cleveland area.

If you are remotely interested in natural history you may like to take look at my natural history links and some of the birding and botanical habitats in and around the Teesside area. You may also like to take a look at the excellent web site of the Teesmouth Bird Club

My interests range over a number of aspects of natural history. Birdwatching has been a lifelong passion with developing interests in botany and entomology. If you are keen in any aspect of natural history there are a number of clubs in the region to meet others with similar interests, see the natural history links section.
