shepherd's notes

For much of this walk you look over to Coquet Island is an RSPB reserve about one mile off Amble and is home to a large colony of nesting seabirds such as the Roseate Tern, one of our rarest nesting seabirds, with the island holding 90 per cent of the UK's Roseate Tern population. Several thousand nesting Sandwich, Arctic and Common Terns accompany the Roseates in May, June and July, and thousands of Puffins occupy the main part of the island. Coquet Island has been occupied since the 7th Century, initially as a monastic cell, later a lighthouse station and now by the RSPB wardens, who live on the island through the spring and summer.
