About RSPB Saltholme

Each spring, one of the UK's largest inland breeding colonies of terns arrives to nest on the cockleshell islands in Saltholme’s pools. There are ducks and grebes too, migrant waders and thousands of winter visitors like golden plovers and lapwings along with mesmerising murmurations of starlings. Hides and viewing screens, a walled garden and visitor centre make Saltholme a great family day out.
