Farne Islands, Northumberland, take third place for Favourite nature reserve in Countryfile Magazine awards
The Farne Islands have taken third place in the ‘Favourite nature reserve’ category in the Countryfile Magazine Awards 2012.
The Countryfile Magazine Awards are a celebration of the UK’s countryside and its people. The 2012 awards are the second and were launched in the April issue of Countryfile Magazine.
They feature 12 categories, from conservation projects and best heritage attraction to country writers and our finest nature reserves.
In each of the 12 categories, a panel of experts drew up a shortlist of candidates. The awards were then voted for by readers of the magazine and members of the public via post, email and on the Countryfile Magazine website,www.countryfile.com.
First place went to London Wetland Centre, and the Attenborough Nature Reserve in Nottinghamshire was voted into second place in the favourite nature reserve category.
