19th November: Winter Is Here

Winter has arrived on Lindisfarne! The Reserve had its first snowfall this morning.

Today began with a search for the cattle among the dunes, in the middle of a hail storm! Thankfully this was followed by blinding sunshine - just going to show how the Reserve can experience all weathers in one day.

Reserve staff will continue to check our livestock daily, and if we experience prolonged bad weather the stock will be returned to their homes on the mainland for the winter.
