Island

I used the term "tidal island" following Wikipedia, but they cite no source and I can't find it in any dictionary or encyclopaedia of geography, so I've reverted to my previous, explanatory wording till someone with sufficient knowledge of geography says otherwise.

Your changes look good to me. I'm reading through English Heritage books and they seem to take the simple route of just calling Lindisfarne an island but I'll watch out in case they have a particular term. Richard Nevell 12:58, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
The 1995 English Heritage book used the term tidal island so I've added it to this article. Richard Nevell 22:49, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
