Outdoor Meeting: Saturday 24th August 2019 RSPB Frampton Marsh. Co-ordinator Alan Hughes

This reserve is on the Lincolnshire shore of the Wash (in my opinion, one of the RSPB’s best coastal reserves) and has a variety of freshwater habitats, including reedbeds, scrapes and wet grassland, which are actively managed especially for common and scarce wader species. Some of the paths also allow close views over the marshes which fringe the Wash itself, and are good for raptors including Harriers and Merlin.

We will meet in the car park of the visitor centre at 9.30a.m. We will be on the reserve for the whole day, and will aim to explore all the trails which in total amount to 6.5 miles, all of good footpaths: these divide into 3, and anyone who doesn’t want to complete all of them will be able to stop at the VC after each.

The VC has toilet facilities and also serves hot and cold drinks and some snacks, and has a viewing area overlooking one of the scrapes. I will take a packed lunch.

The address of the site is RSPB Frampton Marsh, Frampton Roads, Frampton, Boston, Lincolnshire PE20 1AY. The grid reference is TF356392. The reserve is signposted with brown signs from the A16 between Boston and Kirton. The travelling distance is 68 miles from Great Witchingham HQ, and should take approximately 1.5 hours. Please arrange car shares where possible.

A sign-up sheet will be available at the next 2 indoor meetings. Alan Hughes’s contact details are:- Tel. 01362 667786 Mob. 07767 317862 Email wvbs.editor@gmail.com
