Goose Roost on Sandflats Walk at Mersehead

October 21, 2023 @ 5:15 pm 7:15 pm

Some of the greatest spectacles of nature take place at dusk.

Join our guide to enjoy Svalbard barnacle geese descending on the sandflat and reserve to roost.

This will involve a ¾mile/1.2km walk down to the shore, to view incoming geese. There may be some standing around for a while once in position.

Please wrap up warmly, come prepared for cold or wet weather and bring a torch for safe return to the car park afterwards.

Note that access over the sand-dunes is not suitable for normal wheelchairs. Families welcome (though not suitable for younger children). All children must be accompanied by ticketed adults. Additional car park charge applies for non-RSPB members.


£5 RSPB members, £6 non-members, Children ½ price

Accessibility Details: Firm, mostly surfaced path along route. Distance: 2+miles/3.4km. Visibility will diminish, with return walk in darkness.

Age Restriction?: Adults and children 12+
