The Northumbrian Naturalist (known as the Transactions until 2009) has been published by NHSN since 1831. This journal contains scientific papers, research and observations about the natural world of Northumbria and is the only journal of its kind in the North East.
The Northumbrian Naturalist is currently published in two volumes per year, one of which is an annual report of the wildlife of key sites along the Northumberland coast (see below).

Published in partnership with the National Trust, who own and manage the Farne Islands, and the RSPB, who manage Coquet Island. This annual report records the numbers of pairs of breeding birds on the islands, a bird ringing report and all the rarities seen during the time the wardens are in residence.
The report also contains details of the grey seal colony and sightings of whales, dolphins and porpoises. There are also reports on the butterflies and moths recorded during the year. Copies of the report can be purchased from us or from the Farne Islands. We have made a free example copy available to download (click on button below).
