The National Trust presents The Wild Life, Episode 1, The Farne Islands & Long Nanny, Northumberland

  • Description

    In the first episode of The Wild Life, a new series of nature films from the National Trust, presenter Levison Wood explores one of England’s most important seabird colonies. The Farne Islands, off the Northumberland coast, have been cared for by the National Trust since 1925 and are a breeding site for 23 species of seabird, including 43,000 puffin pairs. The islands are also home to grey seals with around 2,000 pups born every autumn. With an introduction from presenter Julia Bradbury, this film explores the Inner Farne, where you’ll see dive-bombing terns, a medieval chapel and a Victorian lighthouse. Levison finds out what life is like for the rangers who had to deal with the devastating impact of bird flu. He also learns more about the work being done to maintain and protect the area’s fragile ecosystem, address the impact of climate change, protect bird nests and monitor species. Parts of the Farne Islands may be closed to the public and landing on the islands may not be possible due to bird flu. If closures are in place, you can still experience the islands on a boat tour.
