About the Event

Sunday 8 January 2023 - Wildlife Walk 10am to 1pm at Heybridge Gravel Pit, with Carla Davis and Simon Wood. Contact Carla on 07832 286153 for booking and further information, the walk is weather dependant.

Park at Daisy Meadow car park CM9 4RW (Heybridge Basin) and meet at the steps, leading up to the canal.

Dug in the 1960s the site has developed, in the intervening decades, into an incredibly diverse location. The pit is directly adjacent to the RAMSAR Blackwater estuary with saline, brackish and freshwater all next to each other. Around 220 bird species have been recorded. We would hope to see many wintering waders and wildfowl.

There are two pubs and a tearoom in Heybridge Basin for refreshments after the walk. Note that there are no public toilets on site or nearby. Car parking charges are in place at Daisy Meadow car park.
