Local Bird Watching Trips

The Milford Conservation Volunteers are continuing their bird watching trips around the 'creeks & saltmarshes' at Saltgrass Lane and Iley Point.

They currently have three spaces available on Saturday 13th May departing at 9am (£12.50) per seat and a new trip for Saturday 17th June departing at 10am (£13.50) per seat.

The summer visitors are now starting to arrive with sightings of Little Tern, Common Tern and Sandwich Tern. On two recent trips we have also seen Common (Harbour) Seal and a regular pair of Eider and regular Peregrine. The trips are on a Dory, so this flat-bottomed boat can get into shallow creeks to get up close to the birds.
