Coastal bird walk along The Leas – Friday 23rd February 2024

As part of the SeaScapes’ and Partners’ two days of fun at the end of February Half-Term, join us for a bird walk.

COAST will be leading 1.5-hour of bird walk. While we can’t guarantee what we will see, waders like purple sandpiper, ringed plover, turnstone, knots, dunlin, curlew, oystercatcher and redshank will be sharing the billing alongside a range of passerines, wildfowl, seabirds, and lurking somewhere nearby, raptors.

That said, you never know when a rarity might show up…

This event is set on the backdrop of Souter Lighthouse and The Leas. This is a free event. Please feel free to participate in as much or little as you would like. This activity will be taking place outdoors. Please ensure that you have warm & dry clothing and suitable footwear. If you have binoculars please bring them.
