Hesketh Out Marsh is a unique site that is part of the Ribble Estuary National Nature Reserve. This rare saltmarsh habitat is home to a variety of wonderful wildlife including: pink-footed geese and wigeons in winter, along with big flocks of wading birds like redshanks and lapwings.

The saltmarsh had been reclaimed and farmed for many years but breaching the outer embankment on the Ribble, allowed the area to flood once more and the saltmarsh, a very rare habitat in the UK, to re-establish itself.
