The Nature Reserve, which forms the backdrop to miles of sandy beach and dunes, is a paradise for bird watchers with hides available for observing the waders, waterfowl and seabirds which frequent this location. Between January 2011 and late February the Reserve’s website had already totted up over 120 birds, including Egyptian Geese, Cirl Buntings, Sparrowhawks, Avocets, and much much more. For the more botanically inclined, the Warren has its own unique variety of crocus, not found anywhere else in the British Isles.
