An area of wet grassland which is good for waders such as pipits and skylark. The wet fields to the south of the Carr are managed by cutting rushes and grazing.
Prestwick Carr is a large low lying wetland area on the edge of Newcastle. The Trust manages a large portion of the wet grassland to the south of the carr area. The grassland is used by feeding waders and is being managed to encourage breeding. Barn owls and short-eared owls are occasionally seen quartering the ground (see the video below). The site has no access but can be seen from surrounding roads.
