The National Trust is embarking on an exciting new project to transform the former golf course at Sandilands to create a year-round nature experience for everyone.
Working in partnership with the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park, we plan to create new habitat for a variety of wildlife, especially migrating birds such as black-tailed godwit, spotted redshank and spoonbills, along with breeding birds like snipe, lapwings and oystercatchers.
Our vision for this new reserve is to provide a space where everyone can enjoy the benefits of being in nature. We’re delighted to have this opportunity as the Lincolnshire coast is one of the most important stretches of the English coastline for wildlife as a stop-over on the ‘fly-way’ migration route. We plan to create an amazing place for people to immerse themselves in nature and really connect with the wonders the Lincolnshire coast has to offer.
The Wash is one of the most important estuaries in the UK.

Some bold claims are being made about ecology and we are keen to seek further information on the detailed plans and data to back these up.
