Top things to do in Spring

  1. Relish a sky full of singing skylarks and soaring buzzards
  2. Take in the unspoilt views from the Easton viewpoint where you can look for miles and see no sign of man
  3. Listen and watch for displaying lapwings, skydancing over the fields

Top things to do in Summer

  1. Wander down to the beach and look for fossils at low tide
  2. Bring the family on a long bike ride with a picnic to take in all of the site
  3. Keep an ear out for the plop of water voles in the ditches - there is a healthy colony here

Top things to do in Autumn

  1. Watch shimmering dragonflies buzzing over all the ditches along your walks
  2. Look out for wheatears hopping from fencepost to fencepost, refuelling on insects before they make their flight to Africa
  3. Delve into some of the history of the site, which includes amazing stories from the Bronze Age to the Second World War

Top things to do in Winter

  1. Wrap up well and feel the force of nature on a long, bracing walk
  2. Amaze at the yapping gaggles of brent geese which feed in the area
  3. Look to see what wading birds are feeding on the new intertidal habitats
