The Stour Estuary is a nature reserve in Essex, England, east of Colchester on the estuary of the River Stour, managed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
The reserve is unusual in that it consists of two divergent habitat types: intertidal mudflats (fringed by saltmarsh and estuarine reeds), and 130 acres (0.5 km2) of deciduous woodland, mainly oak and coppiced sweet chestnut.

Beautiful place to walk the dogs and enjoy nature. This is a place to have a lovely long hike or a short meander. The main paths are great and obviously do get muddy but perfect for little ones to puddle jump! The river teems with birds and the woods with lots of wildlife. I totally love this place and visit in all weathers and seasons.

What can i say? Well good place to take the dog or dog's for a walk. Great if your a couple to walk. Fantastic if you have a hangover clear your head for the second round hahaha. But be warned if its winter or has been raining go at your peril. So it's a summertime place enjoy.
