St Mary's Nature Reserve - geograph.org.uk - 1735278

St Mary's Nature Reserve Just inland from St Mary's Island is this wetland nature reserve. Here you can look out for wildfowl including Teal, Mallard, Tufted Duck, Garganey, Wigeon and Moorhens. This viewing station lies just off the cycleway which carries the Coast and Castles Cycle Route (National Cycle Network route 1). Although slots are provided for viewing, the fence is so low that birdwatchers can rather more easily look over the top of the fence!

Eve Black Coastal Walkway and A193 - geograph.org.uk - 1735169

Eve Black Coastal Walkway and A193 At this point the Eve Black Walkway through the dunes between Seaton Sluice and Blyth runs alongside the A193 and long linear car park adjacent. The Walkway is followed by National Cycle Network route 1 (Coast and Castles route) and the European Cycle Network North Sea route. Before the recent construction of the Walkway, the cycle route ran alongside the road all the way between the two settlements.
