Birdwatching at Glasson Docks

by Russ on January 4, 2014

Redshank are often seen on the mudflats, using their long beaks to find hidden invertebrates.

Happy New Year Everyone!

We hope you all have a fantastic holiday season and we are very excited for the New Year. There are lots of free wildlife walks planned that you can take part on, so we are going to kick off with a chance to see some amazing bird-life at Glasson Docks!

The goldeneye is a species of duck that can sometimes be spotted on the larger ponds.Glasson Docks sits on the Lune Estuary and is home to hundreds of waders and waterfowl in January. On the 18th of January 2014 we’ll be teaming up with the Canal and Rivers Trust to put on a morning birdwatching walk. Starting at Glasson Docks itself, we’ll head up the Estuary on the lookout for Curlews, Egrets and hundreds of Lapwings. Further up we’ll be looking out for Goldeneye in the open ponds and then heading back down the canal searching for migrating fieldfare and redwing.

Don’t forget…
