Oare Marshes

The reserve consists of over 81 hectares of grazing marsh with freshwater dykes, open water ‘scrapes’, seawall and saltmarsh.The reserve is of international importance for migratory, over-wintering and breeding wetland birds. Suitable habitat is achieved through manipulation of water levels and livestock grazing. The reserve supports a spectacular and diverse range of wetland bird life.

The whole reserve may be observed from the nature trail and viewing hides. For those confined to a car or wheelchair, there is a disabled only car park 300m from the hide overlooking the east flood.
Amongst the breeding species found here are avocet, redshank, snipe, lapwing, water rail, bearded reedling, common tern and garganey.
Migrating species - black-tailed godwit, ruff, little stint, curlew, sandpiper and whimbrel.
Over-wintering - Brent goose, dunlin, curlew, wigeon, merlin, hen harrier, short-eared owl, bittern and twite.
