Self catering close to RSPB Freiston Shore
RSPB Freiston Shore is a developing nature reserve with an expanding range of wetland habitats. The reserve is situated on the Wash – the most important site in the UK for wintering birds, with over a third of a million wildfowl and wading birds present during the winter.
At RSPB Frampton Marsh you will see birds here at any time, but high tides from autumn to spring are best for roosting wading birds: the bigger the tide the better the spectacle. In winter there are brent geese, birds of prey, twites, corn buntings, rock pipits and, with luck, Lapland buntings.
In summer, large numbers of redshanks breed at an exceptionally high density. Other breeding species include oystercatchers, skylarks and reed buntings. Marsh harriers can frequently be seen hunting over the reserve.
