Donna Nook: The reserve consists of dunes, slacks and inter-tidal areas. The reserve is rich in bird life: 47 species of bird breed regularly and the area is famous for more uncommon passage migrants and rarities; over 250 species have been recorded in total.


Among mammals, fox, badger, stoat and weasel are all present, and three species of shrew have been identified. Common lizards also inhabit this part of the reserve. Within the dunes there are attractive dune-slack meadows where many wildflowers, including marsh-orchids, can be seen.

The saltmarsh quickly gives way to inter-tidal mudflats on which grow the locally renowned samphire beds. The mudflats attract a wealth of birds: substantial numbers of brent geese, shelduck, twite, lapland bunting, shore lark and linnet gather in winter, together with large flocks of knot and dunlin accompanied by a wide variety of other waders in smaller numbers.


For much of the year the seals are at sea or hauled out on distant sandbanks


The reserve is 1149.70 hectares (2841.00acres).
