Cycle Steps
Take in fantastic views across the Thames following the river wall from the visitor centre keeping the river on your left around the Veolia site to the concrete barges. Here you can either turn back towards the centre or explore further by heading across the far end of the reserve towards Rainham. On your way back to Purfleet and the RSPB visitor centre, the path takes you alongside the marshes allowing you to appreciate the wildlife across the reserve on the way back.
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
What to look out for: Look for seals basking on the shore of the river and lapwings soaring over head. Different sea birds and waders can be observed on the near shore beaches as well as dragonflies enjoying the vegetation on the side of the trails.

The grasses and flowers along the trails are a haven for bees and butterflies. If you’re lucky, you might even see a water vole in the ditches running through the reserve and if you listen carefully you may hear the marsh frogs calling
