74) Alkborough Flats Nature Reserve, Alkborough. North Lincolnshire. DN15 9JN.
my route was 2:87 miles though you can add many more miles on by incorporating part of the embankment raised path, east and west running.
Tarmac, gravel, dirt track and path. Further sections of the reserve are on grass path but I didn't venture on to these as it was very muddy.
Much of the reserve is reed bed and flood plain so if the river is a high less of the reserve might be passable.
I had to negotiate several deep flooded sections with my mobility equipment. One slope at the beginning and one slope at the far end of the reserve.
A couple of rather awkward swings gates (Radar key operated) and a few awkward bridleway gates with difficult latches.
Facilities on site:
Small car park with Blue Badge parking. Level and flat area. The reserve is free to visit.
What might you see?
The reserve is well known for the reed bed occupants - particular Bearded Tits. I was really lucky to see several Marsh Harrier and a stunning Hen Harrier during my visit.
