Lincolnshire's Natural Coast is a great place for wildlife. For some it is permanent home, whilst others come here to breed and some use it like a service station, a refuelling point on their annual migration. Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and RSPB both run nature reserves along the coast and can help you to get the most from your visits.


Lincolnshire’s Natural Coast sees a constant stream of visiting birds and each month will provide new sightings. The variation in landscape – dunes, fresh and saltwater marshes, beaches and mudflats also adds to its attractiveness to visiting birds.

Nature reserves

A chain of nature reserves, large and small run the length of Lincolnshire’s Natural Coast. Some are man-made from former clay pits whilst others are protecting these endangered landscapes, vital stop-overs for migrating birds.


Seals, voles, natterjack toads, huge swirling flocks of birds and coast-loving plants.

RSPB and Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust are doing a great job in protecting and sharing this beautiful natural coast


Frampton Marsh and Freiston Shore at the southern end of Lincolnshire's Natural Coast offer brilliant bird watching opportunities. Freiston Shore was created to encourage wading birds, in particular the avocet which features on RSPB's logo. Events, viewing tips and kids activities on their website.

Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

Gibraltar Point, is the flagship of Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust's many coastal reserves. Because each reserve offers a different landscape expect to see a variety of birds and plantlife at each site. In fact they have nature reserves across the whole county, look at their events programme and how you can support them.
