Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve a 3,541-hectare (8,750-acre) UK national nature reserve, was founded to help safeguard the internationally important wintering bird populations. Six internationally important species of wildfowl and wading birds winter here. For the pale-bellied brent geese from Svalbard, this is their only regular wintering place in all of the United Kingdom. Pinkfooted and Greylag geese, wigeons, grey plovers and bar-tailed godwits are the other visitors.
