Arnside (Morecambe Bay)

Tuesday 14th August, 2018
Silverdale area, Cumbria

Today we hope to combine enjoyment of the landscapes of Morecambe Bay as it narrows into the Kent Estuary, with opportunities to look for birds and plant life. Let's hope for good weather.

We will start our day on the promenade at Arnside, where there are public toilets and other facilities. We will look for birds on the mud flats and water (ospreys have been seen fishing here in recent years) and shoreline vegetation. We hope The Bore will offer a spectacle before, in the afternoon, we walk on a disused railway bed to Sandside. The walking will about 2 miles (there might be some optional extras), on mostly level ground. 

Given the distance we will be travelling, expect a relatively late return to Bradford.
