Where: The Reserve is situated on a strip of land approximately one mile long on the south side of the Dee estuary just inside the Welsh border by Connahs Quay power station. Kelsterton Road, Flint CH6 5SJ

Star species: Twite, kingfisher, greenshank, snipe and many other wading birds

There are five hides with one having two storeys and is reckoned, by many members, to be the coldest place in the area - regardless of the time of year!

The Reserve has an abundance of wildlife and during a recent survey, seventeen different species of butterflies were identified. Over the years annual recording reports have shown a wide range of birds continuously visit the estuary and the surrounding salt marshes.
