RSPB Blacktoft Sands

Situated just 8 miles east of Goole on the South Bank of the River Humber the reserve has the largest tidal reedbed in England.  The reserve provides an ideal habitat for Bitterns, Marsh Harriers, Bearded Tits and water voles to name just a few. It also provides a summer sanctuary for a host of visiting waders including Black Tailed Godwits, Ruff, Spoonbills, Little Egret, Knot and Greenshank and many more.

There is a car park and toilet block as you enter the reserve. The ‘reception hide’ is just a short walk from the car park. The main path leads to six hides which give good views across the lagoons and reedbeds.
