Nature Reserve
Titchfield Haven. Formerly the estuary of the River Meon which receives most of its water from the chalk. Tidal water is excluded by a one-way valve and the former estuary is an extensive freshmarsh. The river is flanked by reed beds and wet unimproved meadows which are dissected by drainage ditches and further diversified by pools, 'flashes' and patches of fen. Extensive scrapes have been reconstructed. The area is a locally important resort for surface feeding duck and other wetland birds. The flora embraces elements characteristic of a wide range of wetland habitats. The reserve is partly in Titchfield parish. The area also forms part of Titchfield Haven SSSI which extends beyond the reserve boundary. The grid reference given locates an approximate central point within Stubbington and Hill Head.     SSSI
