Avalon Marshes Nature Reserves
Attractions > Nature Reserves
In the last 50 years wildlife has thrived as abandoned peat workings have been transformed and restored to lush wetlands, many of which are now designated as National Nature Reserves.
Covering around 1,500 hectares (3,700 acres), the nature reserves are a haven for a broad array of wildlife and offer the chance to see some unusual species, rarely seen elsewhere. There are many habitat types to discover including: open water, reedbed, mire, fen, meadow and wet woodland. These are also places for people with numerous tracks, trails and hides.
