Much of the diverse Lincolnshire coastline has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe National Nature Reserve has striking summer displays of sea lavender, while Donna Nook Nature Reserve has one of the UK’s largest and most accessible breeding colonies of grey seals. November and December are the best times to see the seals when Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust wardens organise watching facilities for visitors.
The 1,300 acre Gibraltar Point wildlife reserve is a bird-lover’s paradise and hosts breeding colonies of little terns as well as redshank, lapwing, ringed plover and whitethroat.
From Chapel Point to Sandilands you will find the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park. The best way to discover this natural landscape and the wildlife that calls it home is on foot, using the network of footpaths and bridleways.
The area is also home to the Lincolnshire Coastal Grazing Marshes, located between the coast and the Lincolnshire Wolds this nationally threatened habitat supports a diverse variety of wildlife and the distinctive landscape is steeped in a rich cultural history.
