A 36-strong group of wildfowlers and friends recently carried out their third annual clean-up of plastic and non-recyclable rubbish.

The event, organised jointly by the local wildfowlers, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) and the site managers Natural England, allow the wildfowlers to give back to the nature reserve and have a good excuse for a day out.

Litter pickers and bags were provided by Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve manager Andrew Craggs and wildfowling warden Collin Teago.
