West Mersea Winter Birding Boat Trip

13 February 2019, 10:00 - 19:00 (Add to calendar)

Join Mid-Herts Local Group of volunteers for a special winter bird watching trip to West Mersea, Essex.  Head out on the Lady Grace based from West Mersea, spending the morning on the boat exploring the creeks and observing the wading birds amongst the mudflats. Return to Mersea for lunch. Spend the afternoon back on the boat amongst the tidal lagoons of marshland where the birds retreat and gather in numbers performing mesmerising patterns in the sky overhead before we head back to Mersea. There are very few dates where everything ties nicely together but this  date  works perfectly for this and will also give us an opportunity to witness the incredible sunsets which appear at this time of year. 

Cost of the boat trip is dependent on numbers.  The cost is £200 hire of the whole boat for up to six people (£33.50 per person) This includes two hours on the boat in the morning on low water and two hours in the afternoon on the boat on high water.

For food and refreshments on arrival and during the day  we have the options of Blackwater Pearl Café, the Oyster Bar, Coast Inn and the Victory as eateries at Mersea. 

Car share is possible by arrangement. For further details and payment information. 

Please email David Laming at drlaming@gmail.com or text +447534 263868 and he will call you back as he may be abroad.
