August 4th, Sunday (all day) Keyhaven & Normandy Marshes. Leader: Rebecca Dunne 07879 645971

All day car sharing trip, let Rebecca know if you need a lift or you can offer a lift, Bring lunch. Morning visit to Normandy Marsh at Lymington then after lunch we’ll make the 15-minute drive to the Keyhaven/Pennington area to look at Keyhaven Lagoon, Fishtail Lagoon and maybe Butts Lagoon.
Lymington and Keyhaven Marshes is a beautiful area of coastline with views across the Solent to Hurst Castle and the Isle of Wight. The internationally important coastal marshes and mudflats teem with fish and, as a result, thousands of sea birds and waders flock here. This time last year, highlights of 60+ birds seen included Eider Duck, Whimbrel, Ringed and Little Plovers, Common Sandpipers, Common,  Sandwich and Little Terns, Dunlin and young Avocet. Maybe the Roseate Terns will still be around this year.
