Wildlife of the dunes in June

John Dunn, volunteer at Lindisfarne NNR has taken some great photos of some of the Reserves wildlife in June. If you are walking around the dunes you will most definitely see a carpet of wildflowers including orchids. You may also see one of the roe deer that are on the island.

Lapwings now have a some grown up looking chicks which are ready to fledge or have already fledged. They can be quite vulnerable at this time and it's important to keep dogs on a lead or a heel throughout the dunes.


Meadow pipits and skylarks are definitely enjoying this good weather and it's hard to go a few feet without hearing their distinctive calls and flight.
