Pulborough Brooks RSPB Reserve

Pulborough Brooks RSPB Reserve

Set in the sheltered Arun valley, in the heart of West Sussex, Pulborough Brooks is a fantastic place for a day out for people of all ages. There is a superb nature reserve and trail with birdwatching hides and viewpoints, a visitor area with gift shop and a tearoom with terrace. Set in the heart of beautiful countryside, this reserve is a fantastic day out for people of all ages. Walks lead through hedge-lined paths to viewing areas and hides where volunteers are often on hand to help point out the wildlife.

If you're new to birdwatching, introductory walks and courses are held throughout the year. In winter, the flooded meadows teem with ducks, geese and swans. In spring, wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks, breed amongst the pools and ditches, and nightingales and warblers sing from the hedgerows.

Right: Barn owl (Tyto alba).
Linger until dusk to watch the ghostly form of barn owls hunting over the grassland. You can even watch them from the visitor centre.


A heathland restoration project is already attracting woodlarks and nightjars, adding to the sheer variety this reserve has to offer.

With a children's play area, garden courtyard attracting tits, finches, woodpeckers and nuthatches, and a comprehensive events programme, you won't go short of something to do. There is a well-stocked shop and the tea room has a well-deserved local reputation for the excellent quality of its lunches and cakes!
