Northumberland wildlife reserves to feature on BBC songs of praise


The programme, which airs at 1.15pm on Sunday May 22, features Even Sparrows, a Christian organization which organizes birding retreats throughout Northumberland, and in particular in Lindisfarne.

The Even Sparrows retreats, led by Mark Winter, a former trustee of the wildlife charity, are best described as slow-paced birdwatching with prayer and an opportunity for quiet reflection while listening Birdsong.

As part of the programme, Mike Pratt, chief executive of the Northumberland Wildlife Trust, was filmed talking about how the wildlife charity is constantly working to remind people of how nature inspires and connects everything the world in the overview of all life.
