The gateway to the Dee Estuary reserve, Burton Mere Wetlands straddles the border between England and Wales with a mosaic of freshwater wetland habitats, mixed farmland and woodland. The area is bursting with wildlife, hosting avocets, egrets, harriers, noisy redshanks, swallows and swifts.
On land historically reclaimed from the estuary, the RSPB transformed former arable fields into a rich wet grassland with shallow scrapes and lagoons to create a home for a variety of wading birds and wildfowl. A modest reedbed supports an abundance of warblers in spring and provides good feeding areas for herons, egrets and kingfishers.
