Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes NNR LBC Visit – 14th October 2023
Join us on 14th October 2023 for a guided walk by Owen Beaumont (Reserve Warden).
Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes NNR is located on the Lincolnshire coast, covering the 8km stretch between Saltfleet and Mablethorpe. With a varied mixture of habitats, including sand dunes, and a prime coastal location, the reserve has the third highest bird species list in the county. This walk will hope to focus on autumn migrants, hence the date in mid-October when many species should be moving through the East coast. A variety of rare birds have been found there through the years, with the autumn migration season having potential for some exciting sightings.
The walk will start and end at Rimac (LN11 7TS), with a 2-mile loop through the dune paths set to last approximately 2 hours. Parking can be made through a voluntary payment on the RingGo app, with proceeds used for the upkeep of the reserve. Toilets will be made available at Rimac car park, but no other facilities are accessible throughout the walk. No prior knowledge or experience is needed, but please bring your own binoculars for this event.
