Blacktoft Sands, RSPB

Humber Estuary

Blacktoft Sands is on the Humber Estuary, it is England's largest intertidal reedbed, home to Marsh Harriers, Bearded Tits and Bittern.

Six shallow saline lagoons provide habitat for hundreds of Teal and Wigeon, and other species. Winter highlights can include Marsh Harriers coming in to roost, and Peregrine and Barn Owl hunting, so we hope to stay on site till late afternoon. 

There are toilets at the reserve, a number of hides and surfaced level paths. Entrance charges apply for non-RSPB members.
