This reserve attracts many birds including waders and dabbling duck while damp meadows provide a site for winter geese and grazing duck.
It has three hides and several trails and even offers binoculars for hire at its visitors centre. There is a boardwalk which meanders through part of the reserve so access is generally good. You can grab a bite to eat at the RSPB cafe, and there are toilets in the car park.
Beyond the managed nature reserve there is a more extensive area of fields and saltings and it is possible to walk out to a fine sandy beach with rolling white horses breaking on the shore.
You can also access the beach from the village, again quite a long walk but the beach is certainly worth it!
