Alex Lister, the Trust’s Druridge Bay living landscape manager, said: “Not everybody who visits our Lookout Café has a pair of binoculars, so this kind donation from the North Northumberland Bird Club now means that everybody can enjoy nature from the comfort of one of the café’s window seats. This time of year, the Hauxley reserve is teeming with house martins, sand martins, swallows and swifts.”
