Thousands of migrating birds are now returning to the warmer climes of the British Isles as the northern hemisphere moves inexorably towards winter.
And on October 9 you can see some of them at Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, Northumberland.
Telescopes and binoculars will be available at the birdhide, Fenham le Moor, near Belford, just off the A1 between 12.30pm-4.30pm.
The light bellied brent geese have come all the way from their summer home in the Arctic. They will spend the winter months at the nature reserve with their young, finding food on the tidal mud flats that are a feature of this part of the north Northumberland coast.
Other birds, including pink footed geese, barnacle geese, wigeon and teal are also arriving as the temperatures become too unbearable for them in the far north.
Experts will be on hand on October 9 to help people identify the birds and explain their journey to this part of the UK.
