Event description

Description

Visit the wild, windswept Suffolk coast this winter for a truly spectacular birdwatching experience.

After the 20 minute boat journey from Orford Quay you'll spend around 3 hours with a guide exploring the unique island in the Alde-Ore estuary before returning back to Orford by boat.

Havergate Island's shingle banks offer little protection from the elements, so you'll be glad of the shelter offered by the birdwatching hides. And what a view you'll get from those hides!

Hundreds of ducks, brent geese and wading birds visit Havergate in winter, seeking the relative safety of the shallow lagoons. You may spot a barn owl, short-eared owl or marsh harrier hunting too, and if a peregrine flies over just watch the fireworks as it homes in a hapless teal or lapwing.

Places on these trips are strictly limited because of the small capacity of the RSPB boat, so please book early. We have no life saving equipment for under 3 year old children on our boat and therefore can not accept bookings for this age group.

We recommend stout and warm footwear, warm and windproof clothing on this winter trip, wet weather clothing and sun protection at all times of year.

You need to have a reasonable level of fitness for this trip because it requires getting on and off the boat and a lot of walking on uneven and sometimes muddy ground on the island.

There are no refreshments available on the island. Visitors need to bring their own food and drink for these trips. We have one public toilet on the island.

In adverse weather conditions, the trip may be cancelled at short notice at the warden's discretion; in this case, you will get a full refund of your booking fee.

When booking please provide a valid phone number and e-mail as your booking confirmation will be sent via e-mail. We need a valid phone number (landline and mobile) in case we need to get hold of you urgently to update you with changes/cancellation.
