Southend Pier GRE_2685.jpg

 Watch out for Wildlife! 

Southend Pier is in the heart of the Foreshore Nature Reserve, which stretches more than eight miles from Leigh-on-Sea to Shoeburyness. 


This area is important because in winter, the mudflats serve as a feeding ground for large numbers of birds that migrate from further north. It's not unusual for sightings of harbour seals, grey seals, porpoises and sometimes even dolphins and whales! 


Southend Pier is one of the best spots to see some of the abundant wildlife. Pick up a Wildlife Watch Leaflet from the Visitor Information Centre and you'll see some of the most common visitors to the pier, tick them off  when you see them!
