The Long Nanny Tern site 

For nine months of the year, the site blends into the vast stretch of unspoilt beach that is Beadnell Bay, but as May arrives thousands of birds arrive on site for the start of the three month breeding season.

Looking after the North East Coast

We're proud to look after some amazing stretches of coastline in the North East, from the amazing wildlife on the Farne Islands to the iconic Lindisfarne Castle and Souter Lighthouse. We couldn't do what we do without your support, so thank you to everyone who enables us to continue our work.

Use of Drones on the Northumberland Coast 

The use of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are more commonly known, is not permitted on or over National Trust land as part of our byelaws without the necessary required qualifications and a licence granted by us. We are experiencing increasing issues with drones on our sites on the Northumberland Coast and we expect this to continue as the technology becomes more available. Below outlines in more detail why we do not allow drones to be flown at National Trust sites.
