Geese and waders at Whitton Sand, River Humber
Geese and waders at Whitton Sand, River Humber
Almost two hours after high tide. In 2017 the RSPB signed a 50 year lease for this island which is an important home for a wide range of birdlife. This includes breeding marsh harriers, avocets and bearded tits, as well as wintering hen harriers and lots of pink footed geese, lapwings and golden plovers. It is a safe roost site for some of the thousands of ducks, geese and wading birds that stop off on the Humber during migration or make the Estuary their home during the winter months. Whitton Island forms part of the Humber Wildfowl Refuge and is not open to the public.
