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 - such as the "Laundry Lane" Cycleway from St. Helens to Brading.
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.
