Have you ever visited Lancing's Widewater Lagoon?

Have you ever visited Lancing's Widewater Lagoon?

You can see the lagoon just beyond the footpath – this beautiful, coastal nature reserve is one of Lancing's hidden treasures, situated a short stroll along Lancing seafront, between Beach Green and Shoreham Beach.

As seasons change throughout the year, you will discover a rich diversity of birds that rest, migrate and reside here. Watch the Little Egret wading through the shallow waters with its elegant, crested plumage, listen to the haunting cry of the Oyster Catcher or simply sit and watch the Swans as they glide serenely by.

All around the banks of this saline lagoon, you can enjoy the colourful plants and flowers that thrive in shingle and coastal grassland. Rabbits run free from the banked bracken and bats fly silently when the sun has set.
