We are delighted to be working with The One Stop Nature Shop to supply binoculars and a telescope permanently to the Café for spotting the myriad birdlife over the meadows outside the

Cafe. All Cafe customers will have free access to two pairs of Viking Navilux binoculars and one telescope. Ask the Café staff for more details.

 

Any customer with a receipt from the Café and Food Hall will be entitled to a special discount on the Viking Navilux Binocular, at £99 saving £30. Come and visit their stand in front of the grain store on market days or take your receipt to The One Stop Nature Shop at Burnham Deepdale (just 5 miles away)

Here’s what The One Stop Nature Shop suggest you might spot here at Creake Abbey this season:

Look out for barn owls and little owls, red kites and merlins. Check hedgerows for bullfinches, redwing and fieldfare and of course listen out and keep and eye out for pink-footed geese. 

From November to February wintering birds may include snipe, curlew, oystercatchers and the lesser redpoll.
