Cliffe Pools on the Isle of Grain is one of the 8 RSPB-managed nature reserves across the North Kent Marshes. Tucked away on the north west tip of the isle it offers a spectacular combination of open water and big skies. The reserve has a mixture of large salt water lagoons, fresh pools and grassland and a network of nature trails allows visitors to explore all areas. Nature trails are clearly indicated around the reserve and viewpoints provide opportunities to survey the dramatic landscape and the views of the River Thames. The reserve attracts large numbers of birds, particularly waders and wildfowl. It is also a good place to see water voles, harvest mice and an array of insects. At weekends RSPB staff and volunteers are on hand to help visitors find out more about the reserve, the wildlife and the nature trails.
