Mike will lead the walk from the car park towards Hodbarrow Point, looking for butterflies and birds, then along the outer barrier towards Haverigg. We will return along the same route. Overall distance is about 4.5 miles. (If you want to shorten the walk you can walk back along the road to the car park past the Port Haverigg holiday village.)

Bring a packed lunch. Aim to finish around 3pm.

Hoping to see little terns, common terns, sandwich terns, ringed plovers, redshanks, oystercatchers, great crested grebes along with ducks, egrets and migrant birds. We will also look for butterflies, insects and dragonflies, and hopefully see pyramid, fly and bee orchids.
