Breeding birds get help from scouts

Flodden 1st BP Scouts have helped fence off an area on the north shore of Holy Island for breeding shorebirds such as the ringed plover and little tern, the latter being a Schedule 1 protected species.

The Northumberland National Nature Reserve team will be fencing off additional areas to give breeding shorebirds the best possible chance at nesting with minimal disturbance, so if you do come across any of these areas while on the Reserve please give it a wide berth and make sure you keep dogs on a short lead.

The Scout group also helped reserve staff clear parts of the north shore of tidal litter and debris.
