OS: SU 717029
Post Code: PO9 1RD (Ship Inn)
Duration: Full day walk.
Directions: Turn off A27 onto Langstone Road and left into Ship Inn car park just before Langstone Bridge, for initial stop and toilets. Waders can often be seen on the mud here and all along the walk from there towards the seawall, which passes an Egret roost. Turn back when you reach the orchard before you get to the far seawall.
Then drive over the bridge and turn right after 300 yards by the second petrol station signed Nature Reserve (brown sign) to small car park near oysterbeds. Walk from here back towards the harbour area along the shoreline and then back on the inward route.
Habitat: Firm paths at both sites, but can be muddy if wet.
Attractions: Winter wader flocks at high tide roost, sea ducks, grebes, geese and gulls.
Amenities: No facilities at Oysterbeds but there are public toilets on the road outside the Ship Inn (see above).
Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear for conditions on the day which can be subject to change at any time. You will be expected to use the walk in such a way as not to place yourselves or others at risk and to follow all requirements set by the walk leader.
