What to expect
Between 2011-2013, the Environment Agency (EA) constructed 4.25 miles (7 km) of new floodbank inland from the sea between Selsey and Bracklesham, on one of the last undeveloped stretches of coast anywhere between Southampton and Brighton. This area of land has now become RSPB Medmerry nature reserve, a landscape with new mudflats, tidal lagoons and saltmarshes that's teeming with life. Watch redshank and golden plover feeding in the wetland pools as you work; you may even catch a glimpse of one of the resident short-eared owls. Facilities: car parking.
