Teesmouth National Nature Reserve

Teesmouth NNR is a coastal reserve with a range of habitats including intertidal mud and sand flats, sand dune systems, saltmarsh and grazing marsh. The reserve has two main sections: North Gare and Seal Sands. North Gare is an area of sand dunes and marsh on the north bank of the Seaton-on-Tees Channel, and Seal Sands is area of mudflats and sands on the south bank of the Channel.


The reserve contains a large and varied bird population and Seal Sands supports the only regular breeding colony of common seals on the north east coast of England. The site can be enjoyed at any time of year. Winter visitors can see over-wintering birds, summer is best for dune flowers, and terns can be seen in the autumn. Seals are seen throughout the year.


The reserve is half way between Hartlepool and Redcar, 5 kms north east of Middlesbrough. Access is via the A178. There are car parks at North Gare (accessed via a minor road from the A178) and at Cowpen Marsh (on the A178) 0.5 km from Seal Sands.
