The Farne Islands are a group of islands (some only visible at low tide) located between 1.5 and 5 miles from the mainland coast of Northumberland, England. The islands are clustered into two main groups, called the Inner Farne Group (closer to the mainland) and the Outer Farne Group. The two biggest islands in the two groups are called 'Inner Farne' and 'Staple island'. The islands are an important seabird and seal breeding ground and nature reserve. Seabirds include puffins, guillemots, razorbills, eider ducks, kittiwakes, fulmars, shags, terns (arctic, common and sandwich). Seals are Grey seals, also known as Atlantic seals. The islands are managed by the National Trust. Tourist boats visit the islands during the summer months from the mainland seaside town of Seahouses.
