Marshside RSPB reserve

The reserve is the most accessible site around the estuary for viewing the whole of the Ribble’s birds. The freshwater pools and grassland attract especially large numbers of pink-footed geese, wigeon, blacktailed godwits and golden plovers in winter and nesting lapwings, redshank and a range of wildfowl in spring. The saltmarsh is the place to see birds of prey and owls in winter, and high tides bring thousands of waders inshore.
There are two hides and three viewing screens. It is an excellent site to see hen harrier, merlin, peregrines and owls.

Car-parking is on Marine Drive next to the old sand-works. Buses stop on Marshside Road 100 metres from the reserve.
