South Swale Nature Reserve

Faversham Road Seasalter CT5 4BP 01622 662 012

We say

The South Swale Nature Reserve protects important breeding and migratory grounds for thousands of wildfowl and waders, especially in winter, as well as golden plover, skylarks, reed warblers, breeding redshanks and sometimes bearded reedlings and marsh harriers. The marshy reedbeds and shingle shore are also home to rare wild plants and flowers, as well as thousands of insects. On a sunny day it’s a great walk along raised paths across the marsh and back along the beach (or you can continue all the way to Faversham); in the winter it can be wild and excitingly exposed. There's also a great B&B nearby which backs on to the reserve.
