RSPB birdwatching cruises on the Boston Belle begin in April, 2020
Tickets are on sale for the RSPB’s popular birdwatching cruises around The Wash.
This year’s first cruise is on Thursday, April 16, at 11.15am and they run throughout the year until October 23.
But tickets do go quickly and can be purchased from ticket agency the South Holland Centre in Spalding.
The cruise sets sail on the Boston Belle from the Lock Keeper’s Office on Witham Bank East in Boston.
It lasts four-and-a-half to five hours and gets visitors up close to a wide range of species of birds. Seals are also seen on most cruises, on the exposed mud banks in The Wash.
Last year, more than 108 species of birds were spotted, including kingfishers, peregrine, redshank and gannets.
