RSPB NATURE RESERVE
Havergate Island nature reserve lies in the Ore estuary, south of Orford village. The island consists of saline (saltwater) lagoons, marsh and mudflats.
It is famous for it waders and seabirds. It is a great place to get up close to brown hares at any time of year. From late summer, many migrating wading birds stop off at Havergate to feed and roost. In autumn and winter the island provides a haven for large numbers of ducks and wading birds.
