Please be aware of the following:
Tides: Strong currents and soft sand underfoot mean that it is very dangerous to enter the water on the wash over area as the high tide comes in and recedes. We have made sure the tide times will not affect this walk.
Inclement weather – for safety reasons the nature reserve may on occasion be closed to the public. Please check www.ywt.org.uk before you set off.
Brown tail moth caterpillar: In the scrub around the base of the lighthouse, and along into Chalk Bank, you may notice what look like tents stretched between branches, which are in fact the overwintering silk tents of the brown tail moth caterpillar. Whilst for many these caterpillars are harmless, they can cause itchy allergic skin reactions or respiratory issues for those with asthma or hay fever – so please don’t touch the caterpillars or the tents.
