Birding

Not cheap to park. But, there was plenty of wildlife even on a wet and windy day. Birds aplenty. Worth bringing some binoculars if you've got them.

Enjoyed this part of Marazion and the marsh forms a part of St Michael's Way, which is a far more interesting (albeit longer) way to walk from/to Penzance and Marazion. Intriguing little area of marsh land with some delightful view points for bird watching and a varied path through (pretty much) to the A394. Take care crossing the railway line!!!... More

Lots of rabbits and many different birds. Good for bird watchers or anybody interested in seeing many different birds in one place. Only negative is you youst to be able to park in the layby for free .but that is now gone and is just a pavement. it is expensive to park if you just want to look at the... More

This little spot has always been a favourite with my family and was lovely to see it still remains. Yet another lovely part of marazion.

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.
