Escaping Skegness the Wash is reached. An area of low marshland.
This, after the technicolour hades called Skegness is a study in dull bleakness. An area of Marshland, flooded at very high tides, it edged by earth dykes to give an area of reclaimed
land on the landward side.
However it is only bleak on the surface. This is one of the most important bird breeding sites in Europe and thanks to the RSPB the encroachment of agriculture has been halted, even reversed, in places and breeding grounds
for Avocets, pink-footed geese and others have been preserved.
