Lots of bird watching opportunities. You may see egrets, linnets, a skylark, a grey heron, kestrel, greenfinches and more. The reserve is accessible all year round, but winter has some of the best birding opportunities due to migrating wildfowl.

Pleasant way walk, lots of birdlife to see. Just a shame about the noise of the A27

Nice flat route with wide paths for most of it. On a clear day, lovely views in every direction.

WalkingBugsMuddyNo shade

Lovely walk for little legs, lots of bugs, snails and the bird life is great - we saw ducks, swans, geese, egrets, sparrows, robins, goldfinch and gulls. Not great for doggies that like to be off lead as it’s a nature reserve so on lead all the time. There are 3 car parks so I would check the furthest away first. And absolutely no shade - today was a drizzly cloudy day so perfect as there were lots of birds out.

Easy stroll around the sea wall. At the moment the path is full of puddles but still doable and beautiful!

Pleasant walk, especially for the dog, however the road noise from the A27 (pretty much a motorway at this point) does detract from it. Tend to head to Thorney Island instead now.

Nice flat easy walk, sea views, perfect for twitchers, cyclists, kids, dog walkers and nature lovers! We put our own twist on this walk in recordings as we wanted to walk further which includes a lovely walk through Old Bedhampton. Very enjoyable!
