Nature Reserve
Hook Nature Reserve. The area is centred around the Hook Lake and its valley and extends along the shoreline from the pier at Warsash to Solent Breeze Caravan Site; also included are the intertidal areas and marshland of Bunny Meadows, over 500 acres in all. Part of the reserve is the former parkland of Hook Park. The reserve encloses various habitats ranging through shingle, saltmarsh, grassland, reedbeds, freshwater marsh and woodland. These habitats support a wide variety of flora and fauna. The area is well served by a good network of footpaths and is very popular with walkers and birdwatchers.     SU 490 061
