Freiston Shore RSPB Reserve

During the winter large flocks of golden plovers, lapwings and other waders can be seen on the saltmarsh and mudflats, as well as dark-bellied brent geese feeding on the saltmarsh and ducks such as wigeons and teals on the lagoon. Birds of prey you may see include short-eared owls, hen harriers and merlins hunting over the saltmarsh.

Frampton Marsh RSPB Reserve

A major new extension to this coastal wetland reserve includes a reedbed, large freshwater scrapes and wet grassland.

New facilities include a visitor centre with toilets, open from 10 am to 4 pm daily (except Christmas Day), the centre has a refreshments area where you can get a hot or cold drink and a snack. We also have three hides, two with 360-degree views, and over 3 km of new footpaths to explore.

The winter can be spectacular, with thousands of brent geese grazing the saltmarsh and thousands of ducks on the freshwater scrapes. Hen harriers, merlins, peregrines, barn owls and short-eared owls favour the saltmarsh or wet grassland. With luck you may see a small flock of twites, or even the elusive Lapland bunting.
