A special anniversary boat trip which will help mark the Wildlife Trusts movement’s 100th anniversary will head to the Inner Farne Bird Sanctuary on Saturday 1 September, running from 12.30pm – 5.00pm.

The tour begins and ends at Seahouses and follows the route Grace Darling and her father took during their heroic rescue in 1838.

It includes a cruise around all the Farne Islands which will provide the opportunity to a great range of Northumbria wildlife, including the grey seals gathering for the mating season, as well as large rafts of sea birds on the cliff faces.

At 16 acres, Inner Farne is the largest of the Farne Islands and in the summer months becomes home to many thousands of nesting birds.

During the extended visit to the Island, you will be able to speak to experts about the area and the many birds you will hopefully see, including Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills and Terns.

Tickets cost £20.00 per person (including landing fees) and booking is essential; although refreshments will not be available, trippers are welcome to bring their own food and drink for the boat trip or whilst on the Island.

To book your place please telephone Christine O’Neil, Northumberland Wildlife Trust Membership Officer on: 0191 284 6884. Payment can be made either by debit / credit card over the telephone or you can reserve your place and pay by cheque.
