Excellent views and walks

The meadows are grazed by cattle through the summer and may also be cut mechanically in late August/early September. This controls more invasive species such as rushes, leaving areas of nutrient-rich grass for Wigeon and other wildfowl. To the north of the Reserve, Posbrook Meadows are managed as wet meadows and are flooded in winter to provide feeding areas for both wildfowl and visiting Black-tailed Godwits. Excellent views can be gained from the footpath along the Titchfield Canal.
