Just off the sea wall large numbers of ducks, such as Scoter and Eider can be seen feeding or resting on the water. In winter their numbers are swelled by visitors like Long-tailed Duck, Slavonian and Black-necked Grebe and Red-throated Diver.
The bird reserve offers a resting place for many of the birds when the tide is in and allows great viewing opportunities from the three hides.
The scrub alongside the paths is home to Skylark, Reed Bunting, Twite and many other small birds.
