RSPB Marshside is a fantastic wetland site is located north of Southport town centre and has some of the best wildlife in the region, with amazing year round viewing opportunities. In the summer, you’ll spot nesting birds like avocets and lapwings, while the skies fill with pink-footed geese and wigeons in the winter.

There is a visitor centre and a further hide, with paths along the edges of the reserve from which the wildlife can be viewed.  On the coastal side of the reserve one can scan the salt marsh for egret and hunting marsh harrier from the pavement of the Coastal Road which skirts the reserve.
