The Island's only RSPB reserve is at "Brading Marsh", (Marshland S. of Bembridge Harbour to Brading and Centurion's Copse).

NOTE; There is no public access.
-It can only be viewed from the perimeter footpaths - such as the "Laundry Lane" Cycleway from St. Helens to Brading, or from Gander Down. - - - - - - -
The FP from Brading to Bembridge Windmill (NT) passes though "Centurion's Copse" has gives views over the marsh.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The "New Bridge" Pools to the West of Laundry Lane are excellent for waders and Ducks.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A "must see" is the "Hersey NR" at Seaview Duver, excellent public hide with good views of Waders, Herons etc.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

There are many National Trust (NT) properties on the Island, the largest being Newtown Nature Reserve, which has a Visitor's Centre and 3 hides. - -

The new "Off the Rails" cafe at the old Railway Station (Yarmouth) had a "Bird Hide" fashioned as a Signal Box, -now converted to a dining room?
