Photos of Linton Lane Nature Reserve, Northumberland.
These photos are from Linton Lane Nature Reserve, tucked away on a former opencast mine near the village of Linton, a few miles from Morpeth.
*Note - there is no access to the lake shores in order to protect wildlife - these photos were taken from the bird-watching hides.
