Broadcaster Sir David Attenborough has called Northumberland's Farne Islands his favourite place in the UK to see nature at its best.
The renowned documentary maker was asked where in the UK he would recommend for those who wanted to see "magnificent nature" during a live question and answer session on the BBC website.
The news was well received by Head Ranger of the Farne Islands David Steel, who expressed his happiness at the beauty of the Farne Islands being recognised.
I'm still smiling; not every day Sir David Attenborough says your the best place to visit in the spring! #farneislands
The head ranger also took to his blog to re-iterate the beauty of the Farne Islands.

That’s some accolade from Sir David Attenborough and I can not disagree.
The Farne Islands are simply a stunning place for wildlife and no one will ague with that.
