Reserves by name

The reserve is made up of a mosaic of saltmarsh, peatbogs, farmland and wet grassland providing homes for a great variety of native wildlife. Trails lead to a wheelchair accessible hide looking out over the main wet grassland area where lapwings, redshanks and snipe breed in the summer and thousands of swans, ducks and geese spend the winter. Longer trails over more difficult terrain cross the peatbog where bog plants and dragonflies abound. You can watch the spectacular wading bird roosts at high tide on the saltmarsh from the roadside laybys.
Reserve open at all times. Visitor centre open 10 am to 4 pm most days and manned at weekends.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
Family discovery zone with self-guided activities and children's 'Tail Trail.' Pond-dipping nets, trays and guides available to borrow from the visitor centre.
