15th October: Birdwatching event a success!

Last Saturday and Sunday experienced local birder and chair of North Northumberland Bird Club, Graham Bell, held a special birdwatching event at the Window on Wild Lindisfarne. The event pulled in a good number of visitors, Graham's bird call impressions definitely caught the attention of any passers-by!

Just some of the keen attendees with Graham, being shown the many birds on the flooded field 

On Saturday, Graham met the group at the Window on Wild Lindisfarne where fantastic views of some Dark-bellied Brent geese could be seen along with teal, redshank and lapwing among other waders. The group spent some time here listening to Graham's knowledge of the bird species on the scrape before walking up to the Lookout on Wild Lindisfarne on the Heugh. Here, great views could be seen of the birds across Fenham Flats and around the Island's shores.

Some of the spectacular birdlife seen over the weekend...




Graham is keen to hold more birdwatching events with us so watch this space!
