The most important estuary for waterbirds in the UK

The RSPB has worked with the Environmental Agency to convert 66 hectares of coastal farmland into tidal salt marsh which benefits birds who have lost such tidal habitats elsewhere in the UK.

This is the ideal location for bird enthusiast, with sitings of Tree Sparrows, Skylarks and Yellowhammers all year round plus various seasonal visitors. There are excellent views to be found, especially on the salt water lagoon at high tide - often attracting wading birds in their thousands.
