Just north of the shingle beach a scrape was constructed during the winter of 1975 for birds to nest and feed. This, with its islands, was made partly by the use of machinery and partly by voluntary nature conservation workers in a co-operative effort with the County Council.


The scrape is very shallow (apart from its deep protective moat), so that wading birds can use it for feeding, particularly in spring and autumn while on migration, and by wildfowl in the winter.


The scrape is in need of renovation and negotiations are taking place at present for funding to improve the habitat for birds. Ringed plovers and oystercatchers are known to have nested on the islands.
