20th November: Gateshead Scout group

On Saturday 15th November, members of the 7th Gateshead Scouts group took a trip up to Lindisfarne NNR as part of a weekend stay in North Northumberland. Reserve staff led the group around the Reserve while explaining more about how the NNR team protect the unique habitats here. The group were very keen to learn about the fascinating wildlife of the dunes and mudflats, particular highlights included  grey seal spotting at Emmanuel Head and birdwatching at the Lough. The group was excited to see winter birds such as Teal and Goldeneye here, they even spotted some Reed Buntings among the Lough vegetation.
