Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve

Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve situated alongside the River Severn near the village of Brandon. It is an SSSI managed by the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and comprises of ten main pools surrounded by wetland vegetation. There are also a couple of small woods adding to the diversity of the reserve.

The reserve is accessed from Brandon Lane, off the A45 just past the Tollbar End roundabout. Car parking is provided next to the Visitor Centre. There is an admission fee for non Wildlife Trust members.

The reserve is a good all round site for native plants, butterflies, dragonflies and birds. In respect of the latter, it is particularly good for over wintering wildfowl; warblers; & waders during the spring and autumn migration. The extensive reedbeds attract over-wintering bitterns.
