Filsham Reedbed Nature Reserve

A 17 hectare reserve containing a large reedbed with ditches and lagoons, set in a river valley floodplain.  

The largest reedbed in Sussex is surprisingly hard to find, tucked away in the Combe Haven valley - a Site of Special Scientific Interest - between Bexhill and Hastings. The valley is an important migration route for birds, and the reedbed, a Local Nature Reserve, is a crucial stopping-off point for thousands of swallows and warblers, and occasionally much rarer species, such as marsh harrier and bittern.

 

highlights:  Reed warbler, water rail, lesser whitethroat, bearded tit, teal, sedge warbler, reed bunting.

Location & access: Access is via a footpath that runs alongside the Combe Haven river, from the Bulverhythe recreation ground just off the A259 in St. Leonards. After one kilometre there is a footbridge over the river, the reserve can be accessed from a boardwalk which leads to a viewing platform.

Grid reference: TQ 775097.
