Busy June
Busy June on the Coast

June was super busy with Practical conservation; beach cleans and lots of Deputising for the “space for shorebird” rangers on nestwatching duties for Ringed Plover and Little Terns chicks.

The Solstice was spent down on the shoreline at Boulmer completing a quarterly intertidal survey of the rocky shore, we have a growing number of enthusiastic volunteers focusing our ID Skills to gather data on seaweed species and distribution as well as the population distribution of periwinkles and we were heartened to see NIFCA (Northumberland inshore fisheries and conservation authority) on site who encouraged us to feed in our data directly to them.

We also helped out at the fantastic Bio Blitz Event (bio diversity survey and engagement event) at Embleton Quarry Nature Reserve, were we reaped the benefits of the practical conservation sessions we have had improving various habitats on site over the last few years, seeing the fruits of or our labour with a host of new species being recorded.

"I met some wonderful people and really felt that my work helped make a difference to my local area."
