Visitor ambassadors

We have a small group of volunteers who are our visitor ambassadors. They help with events and speaking to visitors at the Window on Wild Lindisfarne. We've had Jill and David as well as Richard giving up the odd day to be stationed there giving directions, advice and chatting about the Reserve. If you are visiting why not pop in there's plenty of information and if our volunteers are in then a scope and binoculars for you to use! (Pictures (c) JJD)

Here's Richard's account of his time:

A quiet morning as we expect given the tide times and Feb. - though a nice sunny day. There were sheep grazing in the field right up to the window pond - quite useful as they lifted 2 snipe.

Birds as well as the snipe were:
13 black tailed godwit
3 redshank
2 grey heron
30 ish teal
5 curlew

(If you would like to volunteer as an ambassador then please get in touch 01289 381470)
