This part of the Camel Estuary is part of the main feeding area for both waders and wildfowl. The area is predominately saltmarsh, with a myrad of channels. The confluence of the Camel and Amble Rivers are in this section as is a small mudflat favoured by Golden Plover.
The area can be viewed along the south shore from the Camel Trail, reached by walking from Wadebridge. There are two hides, one over looking the mudflats at the west of area, provided by Cornwall Council and another on the north shore provided by CBWPS. The latter hide can be reached by parking at the small layby at SW987742, and walking east along the permissive footpath, it is open to the public.
