Everybody loves a puffin, and there’s no better place in the UK to spot them than on these windswept islands in England's north-east.
To see them, you’ll need to visit during breeding season, between April and late July, although there’s plenty to see outside of these months.
Keep an eye out for kittiwakes, guillemots, black-headed gulls and several species of tern – you’re most likely to spot the latter in the spectacular Beadnell Bay.
Make sure you stop by the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve, too – it’s home to various wading birds, such as barnacle geese, pink-footed geese and bar-tailed godwits, famous for their extremely long beaks.
Although it’s not possible to spend the night on these National Trust-owned islands, there are numerous boat tours available, most of which sail out of Seahouses in Northumberland.
