RSPB Birdwatching Coach Trip to Frampton Marsh

The Loughborough RSPB Group invite you to join them on their coach trip to the RSPB reserve at Frampton Marsh

A major new extension to this coastal wetland reserve includes a reedbed, large freshwater scrapes and wet grassland. These habitats have all been created to bring the wildlife of the Wash closer to you. More »

New facilities include a visitor centre with toilets; the centre has a refreshments area where you can get a hot or cold drink and a snack. There are three hides - two with 360-degree views - and over 3 km of new footpaths to explore.

Frampton Marsh is at the leading edge of visitor and habitat nature conservation planning. The RSPB has designed every aspect of the new habitats and facilities to maximise the value for wildlife and the opportunities for visitors. Ideally positioned between Norfolk and the Midlands, a visit will be well rewarded.

The first returning brent geese arrive in September and can be seen grazing on the saltmarsh. The highest tides of the year are in September and force thousands of waders to seek refuge from the tide on the highest parts of the marsh, usually just over the sea bank. The early autumn period can be good for visible migration of swallows and yellow wagtails.

The coach will leave from outside the Brockington Building, Loughborough University, Epinal Way, Loughborough at 7.30 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 £18 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.
