Rye Harbour Nature Reserve
Discover our wildlife in a mosaic of coastal habitats – shingle, saltmarsh, saline lagoons, coastal grazing marsh,
freshwater gravel pits and reedbeds. Explore its changing coastline and military history, or simply enjoy a walk beside the sea.
One of the most important conservation sites in Britain, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve has been recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest,
a Special Protection Area for birds under the EU Birds Directive, a Special Area of Conservation under the EU Habitats Directive and a Ramsar site that takes account of its importance as a wetland on an international scale
