Cliffe Pools RSPB Reserve

Cliffe Pools RSPB Reserve

Acquired in 2001, the 230 hectares of Cliffe Pools are a mix of saline lagoons, freshwater pools, grassland, saltmarsh and scrub. These habitats have developed on old clay diggings and river dredgings. The reserve already attracts thousands of birds. It is renowned as a site for wading birds, with massed flocks moving from the Thames Estuary onto the pools on winter high tides, a wide range of passage birds in autumn and spring, and breeding avocets, redshanks, lapwings and ringed plovers.
At the brackish Black Barn pools and grasslands, breeding lapwings and redshanks gather with dabbling ducks, marshland warblers, corn and reed buntings, linnets, stonechats and skylarks. The saline lagoons have breeding avocets and common terns in most years, plus great crested grebes. View the pools and lagoons to see migrant waders like greenshanks and spotted redshanks. The scrub holds warblers, owls, nightingales pictured and turtle doves.
