Moulton Marsh: The long narrow stretch of the reserve is entirely man-made, This area covers 6 hectares (15 acres). Upstream (west) of this area are two large lagoons with islands, and adjacent to the river are shallow tidal scrapes. Beyond this is an area of saltmarsh and creeks, followed by another lagoon which is now a reedbed. This whole area totals 14 hectares (35 acres). Beyond that are some 16 hectares (40 acres) of saltmarsh.


The maturing woodland now holds a good population of tits and finches, while the scrub areas are habitat for whitethroats and buntings. The lagoons are an important wintering area for up to 14 little grebe and water rail in winter. Redshank and little egret are regularly seen on the scrapes.


These saline lagoons are a scarce habitat despite having only a few species which are nationally rare.
