Newport Wetlands is a blend of wetlands, reedbeds and estuary habitats, including the thick, squelchy mud that waders and wildfowl love to forage in.

Look among the reedbeds for Lapwings and Oystercatchers, or look skyward for Swallows and Swifts through the summer. Warm days bring dragonflies, bees and Grass Snakes out, and we also often see Weasels and Stoats. As dusk falls, watch thousands of Starlings take to the sky for their beautiful winter murmurations.
