Site description A complex of dune, lake and forest habitats situated in a broad valley. Large areas of a shallow, stream-fed brackish coastal lake are vegetated with Juncus and Phragmites. South of the lake is an extensive, seasonally flooded Fraxinus forest. Quercus and Carpinus forests surround the lake on drier ground; areas of dune have been forested with Pinus. Cattle graze the wetland.
Key Biodiversity The area is important for large numbers of wintering wildfowl.
