Event description

Description

With their spoon-shaped beaks, shaggy crests and long legs, spoonbills are among the most unusual of British birds.

These scarce visitors have taken a liking to Havergate Island, making this a great place to watch these magnificent birds.

Come along and join one of our guides for a guided walk on Havergate. The guides will show you the island lagoons and point out the wildlife we should be seeing at this time of year such as a variety of gulls, terns, wading birds and if we are lucky, the Spoonbills. Salt marsh flowers will be in bloom and hares are present all year round.

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

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 footwear, warm clothing, 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.

For general enquiries other than booking please contact Minsmere on 01728 648301

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.
