The Farne Islands are situated about 6 kilometers off the mainland. They are a nature reserve that attracts many nesting sea birds. This picture an only convey the visual glory of the place, not the earpiercing sound of millions of birds or the stench of the guano.
Hobbyists who are bird-watchers are often called twitchers. They can be just as interesting to observe as the birds.
It was here that Grace Darling lived with her father in the lighthouse.
