The jewel in the crown of the Northumberland coast has been a regular destination for the NEWT team since we first moved her in the early 90's :-)
Away from the bustle of the occasional crowds in the village centre, we explore the island for migrant birds in the spring and autumn, flowers and insects during the summer, and vast flocks of waders and wildfowl through the winter.
Our Lindisfarne mini-Safaris start from the main car park on the island and last 3-4hrs.
You can see available dates by visiting our calendar page, which has our online shop built into it to make it easier for you to book the date you want.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
We had a wonderful day out with Martin, the weather was the best that Northumberland has to offer at this time of year, lots of blue in the sky providing the perfect backdrop to the lovely views in every direction on Lindisfarne. Without Martin's expert eye guiding us we would have missed a lot of the wonderful wildlife that was at times almost under our nose but beautifully camouflaged. Although I have been to Lindisfarne a number of times Martin showed us areas and viewing points that we hadn't seen before and was quickly able to spot the many different birds and wildlife that were also enjoying the day. As well as seeing lots of different varieties of birds, Roe deer were spotted with aid of the telescope that Martin brought along and seals were seen basking on the sandbars beside the island.
Martin provided the perfect picnic for wildlife watching, the soup and sandwiches went down very well while we watched the tide bring the birds closer to us. It was wonderful to be able to just focus on the wildlife for the day and not have to worry about driving or where we were going as all that was taken care of. Martin showed us some wonderful places to see some of Northumberlands wildlife and patiently answered our questions when we needed help identifying the many different birds. The day was a real treat for us and once again we learned so much from Martin about the creatures we saw and where to see them. A memorable experience that I would highly reccomend to anyone who loves the area or loves wildlife.
We would certainly like to do more trips in the future with Martin's expert guidance and knowledge.
