RSPB Pulborough Brooks Nature Reserve
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Star species include Bewick swans, barn owls, teal, nightingales, and wigeon, depending on the season.
Butterflies and dragonflies abound at the height of summer, especially around the hedged nature trail and ponds.
The Pulborough Brooks site is set in the Arun Valley, part of the South Downs National Park. The site offers a wide variety of habitats, from heath to woodland and wetlands. The varied natural environment makes the reserve a haven for a wide range of wildlife and bird populations.
The visitor centre is open daily, and the nature trail is open from sunrise to sunset. (Free to RSPB members. Check the website linked below for current charges for non-members.) There are regular guided walks, nature courses, and introductory events throughout the year, and there are often volunteers on hand to help if you are new to birdwatching or simply want to learn more about Pulborough Brooks.
The reserve is located about two miles from Pulborough village. Take the A283 signposted Storrington and you will see the reserve entrance on the right-hand side of the road.
