Havenside Nature Reserve, Boston, Lincolnshire

Havenside Nature Reserve, Boston, Lincolnshire

Situated on the outskirts of the market town of Boston is a lesser known nature reserve bristling with beautiful Lincolnshire wildlife.

Overlooking the salt water stretch of the River Witham, known as The Haven, the park is linear in shape and can be accessed on foot by the seabank path.

You might witness anything from oyster catchers and barn owls to bats and common seals. There is a superb mix of rough grassland with scrub and brambles, cattle grazed meadows, shallow seasonal ponds, estuary and mud flat. Salt marsh plants such as sea lavender and grasswort colonise the mud.

Access to the site, which includes a car park and picnic area, is via the sea bank path from the main entrance near Finn Forest, off Fishtoft Road. Alternatively it can be accessed by car via Fishtoft village.

Havenside was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 2005.
