The reserve is on Erith Marshes. Rare birds, insects and plants. Best mammal and best Dragonfly and Damselfly site in Bexley. Guided/educational walks. Hands-on conservation work. The £10 fee (£15 joint) now gets you life membership of the Friends Group with access to the fenced part of the reserve and the fabulous new two-storey bird hide, plus a full-colour newsletter. The rest of the site, including Southern Marsh, is open to the public all year round.
