Although I have visited this area many times I normally park at the other side of Marazion, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this little nature reserve. It is good to see a bit of natural habitat and we spotted heron, geese, ducks and a few other species I cannot name. There were the inevitable rabbits everywhere. it would... More

Unfortunately one cannot get close enough to the bird life to make this more than an average experience. Added to this the joggers and dog walkers do not add to the tranquil conditions. Distance sightings of grey heron, egrets, mallard ducks,swans and moorhens were to be expected but the highlight was a visiting Squacco heron which showed occasionally allowing me... More

The reserve is not big, but it can have some interesting wildlife on the reserve. There is no visitor center but there are a couple of signs around to give information. it is a nice walk around particularity on a sunny day and it is free.

Having never been here before, we paid a quick visit on a very blustery day. Looking at the maps, which leave a bit to desire in showing the reserve, we probably only covered a small part. the walk through to the railway line produced nothing of note, in fact apart from Whitethroat and Egret, little at all. I would have... More

Although I am a local, I've got to say that Marazion is beautiful and the Marsh is full of wildlife. For anyone that loves birdwatching or just the tranquil environment that the marsh gives you, this is a place you must visit...and it's just opposite the wonderful beach.

This reserve is listed as the only one in the UK where herons nest on the ground rather that in trees. Well worth a visit and just opposite the beach,

If you like your birds, this is a great place to see a number of interesting species, including herons, sedge and reed warblers, and dunnocks.

We walked through the marshes regularly to visit Marazion from our holiday accomodation. Very peaceful but didn't view much bird life [ probably due to time of year and just unlucky]. Nice place to have a gentle walk and perhaps sit in the sunshine waiting for the birds to come. Just to chilly for me to do that in March!

After more than forty years, I'm still very much an amateur naturalist but, even so, I could distinguish teal resting beside the open water on the eastern section of marsh and a solitary egret. However, when the warblers arrive, I would be struggling to identify what is what. The RSPB have done an excellent job here... and tell the public... More
