Butterfly Walk

Join Reserve Warden Laura for a walk around Lindisfarne NNR to learn how to identify and record our spectacular butterfly species. This is also a great chance to see the rest of our amazing wildlife including the NNR's birds and flora along the way.
Booking is essential as places are limited.

Sunday 17th August, 1.30pm – 4.00pm
The Lost Buildings of Lindisfarne

Come along to Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve to see there's more than nature hidden in the dunes! Join local historian and volunteer John Woodhurst to explore some of the island's less well known historic sites and discover Lindisfarne's once thriving, but now mostly forgotten, industrial heritage.
Booking essential.
Meet at Holy Island Main Car Park - a car parking charge is applicable.
Grid ref: NU 126 423.
