Explore this wonderful RSPB nature reserve on this short walk on the Thames Estuary. There's a series of good footpaths to follow around and between several pretty lagoons. The reserve hosts an abundance of water loving wildlife with thousands of waders including avocets, lapwings, redshanks, warblers, corn and reed buntings, linnets, stonechats and skylarks to look out for. It's also worth exploring the village of Cliffe with its 13th century church and views of Southend-on-Sea and London.
The Hoo Peninsula Path passes the reserve so this is a great option if you would like to extend your walk. It will take you along the Thames estuary to Gravesend in one direction and Allhallows in the other.
The Saxon Shore Way also passes through the reserve. You could follow it to Cooling and then climb Northward Hill and visit the High Halstow Nature Reserve where there's lots more wildlife to look out for.
