The reserve consists of grazing marsh with freshwater dykes, open water scrapes, reedbed, saltmarsh and a seawall. It is a site of special scientific interest and is of international importance for migratory, overwintering and breeding wetland birds. Highland cattle and Konik horses graze on the reserve and there are also two viewing hides for observing wildlife. Visitors are asked to stay on footpaths and keep dogs on leads. The Saxon Shore Way runs through the reserve along the seawall. Waymarker identify the trail on the seawall next to the Watch House. Car parking is provided opposite the Watch House, near the sea wall at the end of the Harty Ferry Road. For those confined to a car or wheelchair, there is a disabled-only car park 300m from the hide overlooking the East Flood. Further information about the reserve and the wildlife is available from Kent Wildlife Trust
