About Coquet Island

Coquet Island is a 15 acres (6 ha) island located on the Northumberland coast. It is owned by the Duke of Northumberland, and it has a bird reserve status being managed by The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

Puffins find their home on Coquet Island in a rather large number, over 18,000 pairs reported in 2002, but surely increased in the recent years. It's the perfect spot for birdwatching, especially seabird colonies. Sandwich tern, Arctic tern and the endangered roseate tern are just a few to be observed.

There is no access to the island itself for the general public; however boat trips can offer a great birdwatching experience and a memorable day out.
