The Lincolnshire Coast is one of the most important stretches of coastline for wildlife, providing an ideal stop off point for migrating birds and other wildlife. You might even spot our resident short-eared owls or a reed warbler in the foliage. There's plenty of passing highlights to look out for when you join this walk and talk.

The important bits:

Where should we meet?

  • Meet near the former clubhouse on the northern tip of the nature reserve between 10.30am and 11am. Please arrive prompty so we can set off as a group.

​What should I bring / wear?

  • Please wrap up warm if it is chilly. There is a coastal breeze - bring a hat and gloves if needed. We recommend sturdy footwear as the land be muddy, uneven or thick with vegetation.

Can I bring my dog?

  • Friendly dogs are very welcome, although they must be kept on a short lead.

How accessible is Sandilands?

  • Sandilands is a developing site, and as such the landscape is uneven, thick with grass and difficult for wheelchair users or those with mobility requirements to walk through. There are multiple areas with indents within the ground. Entering the site from the former clubhouse and car park involves getting over a brief hill. Improving access to Sandilands is a key part of our project.

We warmly invite you to this tour and hope to see you there.
