Christmas at Sandilands
- 03 November 2023
Escape from the holiday rush, wrap up warm and venture outdoors for a winter walk at Sandilands.
Sandilands is the perfect place to escape the holiday rush and venture outdoors for a winter walk with loved ones. The Lincolnshire landscape offers an enchanting backdrop to pause and explore a more mindful festive season.
Wellbeing in winter
Venturing outdoors for an hour or two can lift your spirits. Join volunteer guides, Kate and Robin for a free weekly walk. Routes change each week to take in different elements of nature, local wildlife, and views from the wider area.
Suitable for all abilities, feel free to walk at your own pace. Well behaved dogs on short leads welcome.
Use this time of natural hibernation to venture outdoors, connect with others and rejuvenate. See all our upcoming activities and events at https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/nottinghamshire-lincolnshire/sandilands/events]
Slow down to spot migrating birds over Sandilands. Look out for passage birds such as ring ouzel, whinchat, black redstart, and swallows. Or catch a glimpse of Winter thrushes, redwings and fieldfares often feast on hawthorn and sea buckthorn berries along the seaward side of Sandilands.
Early morning walkers may well encounter short-eared owls searching the grassland for small mammals.
