RSPB Nature Walk

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free Entry, Donations are Welcome

Marshside is one of the best places for birdwatching on the internationally important Ribble Estuary, which holds more birds than any other estuary in the UK. Up to 40.000 birds in winter.

The reserve has some of the best lowland wet grassland in the north-west of England, including the habitats of swamp, saltmarsh and scrub. It is an important refuge in winter for Pink-footed geese, Wigeons, Black-tailed Godwits and Golden Plovers and in spring provides nesting places for Lapwings, Redshanks, Shovelers and Skylarks.
Egrets are now regularly seen on the reserve including cattle and gt white. Bearded tits recorded October 2018, will they finally find a home here?

*Please meet at Hesketh Road, not the reserve car park. We will be looking at the reserve from behind on the footpath by the golf course*
