Begin along the northeast coast of Lincolnshire, which is wonderful for wildlife watching. Grey seals haul out at Donna Nook Nature Reserve with pups born in November and December. The area is also special for birds, with starlings roosting in large numbers.
Alternatively, spend time in the attractive market town of Louth, capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds and crane your neck to admire St James’ which has the highest spire of any medieval church in Britain.
Walking this coast is a joy too! A new stretch of the England Coast Path links 16 miles of spectacular coast between Skegness and Mablethorpe. The skies are really special here and at Anderby Creek (halfway between these two towns) you’ll find the Cloud Bar, where the coast has been designated the world’s first official cloud spotting area.
Continue on to Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve where the sheer scale of the wildlife will amaze you at any time of year. In summer skylarks sing in full song above the purple haze of the saltmarshes. There are walkways, cycleways and fully accessible paths around the reserve.
