Its all go on Havergate

Nov
27
2014


It is all go on Havergate as we plan for the new hide to be built in place of reception hide and gullery hide which were both damaged beyond repair during the tidal surge 2013. The new hide will offer a great view over two neighboring lagoons and give us another central point to welcome visitors onto the island.

As we get closer into winter Havergate is becoming a wader and wildfowl heaven. You can sit in one of the hides for hours just watching the comings and goings of the birds feeding or roosting on the lagoons. Birds of prey have also been putting on good shows with Marsh harrier often flying over and putting everything up in the air or the Short ear owl swooping low over the saltmarsh as you walk by. 

The highlights for November have included 170 canada geese, nearly 600 wigeon, 800 Teal, over 100 Pintail, 230 Black tailed godwit, flocks of Dunlin, Avocet, Golden Plover, 4 Spoonbill are sticking around, Hen harrier and Marsh harrier to name but a few.
