The North Shore is the perfect place for bird watching enthusiasts to stay and experience the vibrant bird life within Skegness. Gibraltar Point near The North Shore Hotel and run by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is the ideal place to capture the beauty of wildlife throughout the seasons.

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve

Just 13 minutes away by car from North Shore Hotel, Gibraltar Point is a dynamic stretch of unspoiled coastline running southwards for 3 miles from the edge of Skegness to the mouth of the Wash. Gibraltar Point covers 1,100 acres of pristine coastline and is recognised as an area of international importance. Sandy and muddy seashore, sand dunes, saltmarsh and freshwater marsh with ponds and lagoons are home to a rich assemblage of coastal wildflowers and many birds. The visitor centre has a cafe, a residential field centre and bird hides. See Gibraltar Point throughout the seasons to appreciate the sheer scale and diversity of wildlife. Spring sees the first of the migrants stop off to refuel or establish territories. Summer brings little terns fishing in the shallows and skylarks in full song above the purple haze of the saltmarshes. Autumn brings huge whirling flocks of waders on the high tides. And winter brings brent geese, shore lark and snow bunting, and flocks of redwing and fieldfare.
