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!!*
