About Adur Estuary Nature Reserve

Adur Estuary is a nature reserve located in Shoreham-by-Sea. The reserve is made up of salt marshes and mudflats, that help wintering wading birds and waterfowl that visit the UK.

Due to the sensitive habitat, access to the nature reserve is not allowed - this allows the birds to breed, nest and settle whilst being undisturbed. You can view the reserve all year round from public footpaths that surround it.

Oystercatchers and Redshanks can be seen here most of the year. In the springtime, you can usually see ringed and grey plovers, little egrets, dunlins and turnstones. Winter months are similar, but at higher tides, birds such as grey herons, snipes and linnets can be found fishing on the reserves saltmarshes.
