Very pleasant afternoon stroll. Beautiful scenery with plenty of wildlife on view. I would recommend wearing good walking shoes or boots as the ground is uneven for much of the time.

Great place to spend a couple of hours whether you're into wildlife or not. Free parking and good footpaths, just be prepared for strong breezes.

A lovely place for a short circular walk of 1 to 3 miles, by the sea and amongst some stunning scenery and bird like. Popular with walkers, dog walkers and birders alike, just a relaxing place to visit and spend time.

Very beautiful place to wander around on a sunny Sunday morning! We are not birdwatchers but there were plenty there enjoying the reserve. The only issue was the very narrow road to get there and not much parking. It's not very well signposted so I...More

I would look at the Kent Ornithological Society website which gives you details of recent bird sightings. A pair of pintails were observed on October 23rd 2017, but as with all bird watching it is the time of day and the... More
