Saltfleetby–Theddlethorpe Dunes in Lincolnshire is a coastal habitat for many species of bird and animal life and covers about eight kilometres and about 952 ha of land on the North East coast.
This reserve is made up of salt marsh, dunes and foreshore with more marsh on the landward side and is home to dune flora, migrant birds and wild fowl. It’s open all year round and many events are held there including walks, nature rambles, bird watching, outdoor activities for children (including wheelchair users) as well as picnics!
The dunes are a natural attraction and their formation continues daily due to the wind and tidal activity. They support a wide variety of grass and flowers. Prolific insects, birds, amphibians and mammals inhabit the salt and fresh water marshes with at least 11 species of dragonfly and damselfly, water beetles and spiders, horse leeches, voles, shrews and the very rare Natterjack toad!
The birdlife listed included skylarks, oystercatchers, little tern, meadow pipit, redshank, Brent geese, teal, wigeon, ringed plover and a host of other waders that stop by.
Seals are common in this area and delight the kids and adults alike but they are shy by nature so you’ll have to be quiet and visit at low tide if you are see them.
Dogs are allowed but on leashes preferably and you’ll need to clean up after them to keep the environment stable.
Plenty of parking all year round and it’s easy to find.
