Chowder Ness walk, Humber Bridge

Chowder Ness

North Lincolnshire

Route: Chowder Ness

Area: North Lincolnshire

Date of walk: 24th August 2014

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 5.1 miles

Weather: Sunny, cold in view of the early start

For the second time in three days I parked at the viewing area near the south end of the Humber Bridge. I was there before 6 am, as I wanted to see the sun rise over the Humber. I was just in time to catch the orange glow and then to see the sun gradually rising in the sky – it was a wonderful sight and the light was magical

I walked underneath the bridge and carried along the shoreline path just beyond Chowder Ness, then headed inland for a short distance to enter the Far Ings Nature Reserve. I lingered in a few of the hides for a while hoping I might see one of the many rarities that inhabit this place – a bittern or a bearded tit maybe? My luck was out but I still had a few good sightings and it was a worthwhile detour

I then walked back along the shore, deviating inland slightly to walk through the reedbeds near the bridge. I was glad to have made the effort to come here at this time of day
