Kinsale Marsh
Just south-west of Kinsale on the Bandon River estuary, Cork (take the road for Ballinspittle and the Old Head, turn right just before the bridge crosses the estuary and continue about 500 metres; the reserve is on the right).Size: 5 hectares
Habitat: An arm of the Bandon River estuary which was cut off by a causeway for the road and now forms an important high tide roost. The area to the east of the central wall is the reserve.

Birds & wildlife: It holds nationally important numbers of wintering waterfowl, e.g. Black-tailed Godwit and Redshank, as well as locally important numbers of Cormorant, Heron, Shelduck, Wigeon, Teal, Mallard, Oystercatcher, Golden Plover, Lapwing, Dunlin and Curlew. Rarities include Lesser Yellowlegs, Semi-palmated Sandpiper, Stilt Sandpiper, Blue-winged Teal and - on the mudflats on the estuary side of the causeway - Pacific Golden Plover.

Visiting & access: The whole area can be viewed from the causeway.
