LWT Gibraltar Point

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's Gibraltar Point is just south of Skegness on the northern flank of The Wash. The reserve comprises sandy and muddy shores, dunes, salt and freshwater marshes and scrub.

My visits have been around the summer bank holiday weekend, a time when some summer visitors are heading south or gorging on fruits and waders are passing through, and sometimes rarities like the Red-necked Phalarope and Long-billed Dowitcher (2004) are present.

After walking around the reserve, scouring hedgerows and scrub for warblers, etc., and looking around the pools from the hides for waders and Kingfishers, it is usually time for lunch among the sand dunes to watch the terns and look out at sea for passing gulls, petrels, waders, skuas, etc.

Below is a list of species I have observed on different summertime visits.
