Top things to do in Spring

  1. Watch the waders poking their beaks into the mud
  2. Can you spot redshanks, dunlins or ringed plovers?
  3. Listen for a high-pitched whistle - you might just see a kingfisher whizzing past!

Top things to do in Summer

  1. Watch the Sandwich and common terns making spectacular dives for fish
  2. See if you can spot young oystercatchers among the adults
  3. Witness migration in action, as birds like dunlins head south after breeding in the north

Top things to do in Autumn

  1. Can you see returning ringed plovers and redshanks?
  2. Keep your eyes peeled for streaky brown meadow pipits feeding on the saltmarsh
  3. Learn how little egrets fish - watch them shuffling their yellow feet around underwater, then snatching fish with their sharp bills

Top things to do in Winter

  1. Look carefully for roosting snipe, ringed plovers and redshanks
  2. See the feeding and roosting teals
  3. If you like a challenge, sift through the gulls (big and small) in their different age-plumages
