The RSPB car park at Marshside will be closed from Monday March 23 to enable repairs to be carried out to the surfacing and fencing.
Pedestrian access to Redshank Road (the Old Sand Works Haul Road) will still be possible.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to re-open the car park by the end of the week and look forward to welcoming visitors to the Visitor Centre once again.

There's something for everyone all year round at this delightful coastal reserve. In the spring you can see brown hares boxing in the fields, while in the early summer you'll spot nesting birds like avocets and lapwings. During the winter months the skies fill with visiting waterfowl such as pink-footed geese and wigeons, not to mention birds of prey that can set flocks wheeling over the marshes. There are two hides, a viewing platform and three viewing screens. If you're new to birdwatching, why not come on one of our special event days?
8.30 am to 5 pm every day.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
Extensive events programme and ABB events take place - all aimed at beginners. Birds all-year and plenty of them.
Some access for dogs - please contact reserve for details
Note: Some reserves are not served directly by public transport and, in these cases, a nearby destination (from which you may need to walk or take a taxi or ferry) may be offered.
