Blacktoft Sands, RSPB, Humber Estua

Tuesday 1st October 

We had to change this trip to North Cave as Blacktoft was flooded and closed.

Blacktoft Sands, situated on the south side of the Humber Estuary, has the largest reed bed in the country and is the home to a number of interesting birds including Marsh Harrier, Bittern and Bearded Tit.   At this time of year it will provide refuge for migrating birds, mainly waders.  There are 6 hides and the access path is level. Toilet facilities on site.  The area is exposed so be prepared.  Admission free for RSPB members & a charge for £5/3 for non-members.

Leader:  Stuart Tordoff and John Gavaghan
Minibus transport; depart Unitarian Church 9.30am.  Cost £10
