RSPB Birdwatching Coach Trip to Blacktoft Sands & Far Ings Reserves

The Loughborough RSPB Group invite you to join them on their coach trip to the RSPB reserve at Blacktoft Sands and the Far Ings LWT Reserve just south of the river Humber

The Blacktoft Sands reserve is on the south bank of the Humber estuary and in the background ships can be seen heading for the docks at Goole. More »

Look carefully for hen harriers and merlins coming into the reedbed to roost as dusk descends. Hundreds of teals and wigeons provide a wildfowl spectacle from the Ousefleet hide. Stop near the flood bank to see the flock of tree sparrows. Barn and short-eared owls can often be seen towards dusk.

There are toilets and an information centre.

The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust began to manage Far Ings in the 1980s when the reeds in the old clay pits were thick and dense. The booming call of the bittern was just a dream. Over the years the Trust has developed the techniques of reedbed management to dramatic effect. Bitterns, kingfishers, water voles and an array of other wildlife can now be seen at Far Ings.

The Visitor Centre has panoramic views over the reserve, interpretive displays and a gift shop.

The coach will leave from outside the Brockington Building, Loughborough University, Epinal Way, Loughborough at 8.00 am

Advanced bookings are essential for this trip, so if you wish to go use the Contact Us from the group website and give your name & contact details and the number to travel.

The cost is £20 for the coach (accompanied under 14s £5) All money is collected on the coach.

Please note:-

We do not ask for a deposit prior to the trip but assess the viability of the trip from bookings made. We are a small group and our trips are a large financial risk to us, we would ask that any cancellations made within 14 days of the trip or failure to travel, incur a £10 payment per booked seat. This ensures we can continue to offer field trips at a reasonable cost and remain financially sound.

We will endeavor to fill any cancelled places and be sympathetic to exceptional circumstances.
