This adult only walk follows the sea wall along the Walton Backwaters as the tide is rising to give a good chance of seeing wading birds at relatively close range feeding on the saltmarsh and mud flats.
Wintering ducks and geese should also be present, including Brent Geese for which Hamford water is an internationally important habitat.
Please be aware that this walk will take about two and a half hours and is about 3 miles in length. The paths and sea wall are uneven and very muddy in places. Please wear suitable footwear and appropriate clothing, bring some water and don’t forget your binoculars.
Please note that wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed.
Booking is essential .
