About the reserve
This reserve, together with adjoining parts of the estuary, forms one of the largest areas of mudflats in the south west. An abundance of invertebrate animals live in the mud. Shelduck are resident here, and kingfishers may sometimes be seen. The estuary supports a large wintering population of avocet. On a winter's day, there is likely to an astonishing number of feeding waders to be seen.
