Barrow Haven Reedbed: Extensive reedbeds (Phragmites, known sometimes as Norfolk Reed) and stands of great reedmace with areas of open water have since developed. The aquatic flora here is richer than in many of the other Humber Bank pits, extensive beds of mares-tail being a notable feature. Patches of hawthorn scrub, bramble thicket and rough grassland with a pleasantly varied flora surround the water and reedbed areas.

The reserve includes the sea bank and a strip of saltmarsh extending to mean high water mark. More than 150 species of birds have been recorded of which 60 have been known to breed, including great crested grebe, pochard, tufted duck, ruddy duck, water rail, bearded tit, and reed and sedge warblers. Bitterns bred until the 1960s and still occur occasionally
