BridlingtonHarbour is an excellent place to birdwatch. In winter it frequently hosts the largest numbers of Purple Sandpiper of the area. The birds can often be viewed at close range, along with Turnstones, which can sometimes be spotted walking around town oblivious of cars and shoppers! Other species of wader, such as Knot, Redshank and Dunlin may also be seen foraging in the exposed mud at low tide. Out in the bay Red-throated Diver, Common Scoter, Eider, Great Crested Grebe or auk species may be present, particularly in stormy weather.
Bridlington’s North Beach is a mixture of mud, rock and sand. Sandwich, Common or Arctic Terns can often be seen here in late summer along with wader species. Sandy South Beach is also good for migrant and winter waders like Sanderling, Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Bar-tailed Godwit. In winter there is always a chance of a Glaucous or Iceland Gull turning up.
