Date: 15/8/2021 Meeting Point: Frampton RSPB reserve near Boston Lincs PE20 1AY (see notes) Time: 09:00 Transport: Members cars Cost: free Leader: Martin Kaye Numbers Limit: None.
Notes: A fantastic reserve on the south western corner of the Wash. Although there are only 3 hides, there is non-stop interest over a large area. Guaranteed 50+ different species. At this time of year a number of the less common migrant waders can be seen. In the past this has included Little Stint, Spotted Redshank and Curlew Sandpiper. In recent years we’ve been treated to a Long-billed Dowitcher and Temminck’s Stint. Also likely to be present are Great White Egret and Spoonbill.
Approx 2 hour drive from Chesterfield. Directions – most folks will head for Newark and then take the A17 as far as the left turn on the A16 to Boston then follow the directions on the map below/PE20 1AY for the SATNAV. For up to date details click on the link to the RSPB website below.
