Delays in sourcing materials, a redesign and even a car collision meant the project to build a new platform to interpret the remarkable natural heritage of Budle Bay has taken almost two years to complete.

The two new eye-catching steel totems focus on the migration to and refuge and sanctuary of Budle Bay for thousands of birds annually.

Sitting on the edge of the Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve (NNR) and within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Beauty the bay is a wildlife haven that appeals to many visitors from dedicated bird-watchers to people just stopping to eat their sandwiches.
