RSPB: Waterloo and Crosby Coastal Park

This events involves a stroll around the four gardens and Crosby coastal park.

The area around Crosby beach and Crosby Marine Park stretches from Waterloo to the estuary of the River Alt at Hightown. The Coastal Park is currently home to the Iron men of Anthony Gormley’s Another Place.

The marine lake at Crosby is always of interest and the vast expanse of sandy beach provides resting and feeding locations for flocks of wading birds where the dunes shelter new arrivals.

The lakes and dunes have played host to a number of visitors over the years, including Long-Tailed Duck, Snow Bunting, Grey Phalarope, Lesser Scaup and Goldeneye.

*Meet at the corner of South Road and Marine Cresent in Crosby and wrap up warm!!*

RSPB: Hale Park and Pickerings Pasture Nature Reserve

This event will involve searching through Hale Park for migrants and finches, before heading down to the estuary coastal path. We will then be moving onto Pickerings Pasture Nature Reserve later on, where the Cafe will hopefully be open!

The walk is fairly easy, however the paths in the woodland and along the coast can be slightly tricky. Benches are sporadic at Hale and there are no facilities except for the Pub.

*Please dress appropriately as it can be chilly along the coast*
