Watch birds while relaxing in your holiday accommodation.
Early morning is typically the best time of the day, many birds are searching for food which makes them easier to observe.
As well as our own Running ducks, we see many wild birds in our trees and around our lake. Barn owls nest nearby.
As the sun sets in the evening the swallows swoop over the lake catching flies for the last feed of the day. The Barn Owls can be seen hunting too.
The countryside around Lakeside Farm is dotted with superb bird watching. Freiston Shore, an area near Skegness, comprises Britain’s most important bird watching destination, with over 700,000 wintering birds annually frequenting its marshes.
