Barnabys Sands and Burrows Marshes are the last extensive areas of ungrazed saltmarsh on the Lancashire coast. Linked in with the mudflats continuing all the way to Knott End, the marshes are important for wintering waders and wildfowl and provide a good day out for both the inexperienced and seasoned birdwatcher.

Of the waders, Redshank shares the mud with Knot, Snipe and Common Sandpiper. Wigeon, Pink-footed Geese and Red-breasted Merganser are among the visiting wildfowl. Cormorants are frequent visitors with Peregrines and Hen Harriers seen over the marshes during the winter months. Skylark and Reed Bunting regularly breed on the reserve. You might also hear the distinctive 'purr-weet' call of the Lapwing.
