The site is a complex of rain-fed, brackish, floodplain grazing marsh with ditches and intertidal marsh and mudflat. It is of international importance for its diverse assemblage of wetland plants and invertebrates (12 British Red Data Book species). Over the winter it provides habitat for Tringa totanus (2.1% of the population), Pluvialis squatarola (2% of the population), and Calidris alpina alpina (1.9% of the population). The area is used for recreation, fishing, grazing, and hunting.
