The Island's only RSPB reserve is at "Brading Marsh", (Marshland S. of Bembridge Harbour).
NB. It can only be seen from the perimeter footpaths - these will be connected near the Bembridge ponds by a boardwalk
In addition there are regular guided walks into the reserve (Charge applicable), see local press for details.

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