February- Launch of the Reserve’s New Events Programme

February may have been cold but it was full steam ahead on the reserve! We undertook beach cleans at the far north of the reserve, Goswick Black Rocks (supported by Coast Care), and to the far south at Budle Bay. Half term was busy, as expected on Holy Island, despite the inclement weather. We celebrated our love of birds on Valentine’s Day and continued the theme of ‘Love Bids’ for 4 days. We spent time with around 330 visitors, highlighting the wonderful array of wildlife that inhabit the reserve.

We provided binoculars, telescopes and identification advice for the watching of birds on the Rocket field. Additionally, we enjoyed bird crafts and games designed to educate visitors of all ages about the resident and migratory birds of Lindisfarne. All of the activities were focused on key conservation issues and how visitors can help to support the protection of vulnerable species across the reserve.
