Great day at Frampton

Langdyke members had a spectacular day at Frampton Marsh – the premier RSPB Reserve in Lincolnshire – enjoying the chance to see thousands of birds.

Located just south of the Haven on the River Witham, approximately five miles from Boston, the reserve consists of a number of freshwater scrapes and grasslands together with a large area of saltmarsh, bordering the Wash.

During the winter months it is home to a large number of waterfowl and wading birds. In most winters the number of birds is breath-taking with over 6,000 Lapwing, 5,000 Golden Plover, 2,500 Brent Geese, and large numbers of Wigeon, Shoveler, Teal and Pintail.

Around 25 members of Langdyke made the visit under the guidance of Brian Lawrence and Bob Titman. The weather was kind in that visitors could enjoy spectacular views although there was a strong wind to battle against while walking.
