Latest update 21/03/2018 with 181 locations in the file.
The RSPB is the country's largest nature conservation charity. They spend 90% of their net income on conservation. Their aim is to preserve and create larger spaces for birds to share our world.
This will help to protect as many vulnerable species as possible from extinction.
In general the locations mark the entrance to the reserve but where there are no mapped roads nearby the nearest appropriate approach point is indicated.
Some reserves are vast areas of countryside and a suitable car park is shown. Other car parks may be available. Sometimes the RSPB suggest a nearby car park and this is indicated.
The basis for this file is the list of reserves on the RSPB web site. The telephone number for each reserve is provided where available. Check the RSPB web site to ensure the reserve is open before setting off.
Some reserves are not open to the general public.
My thanks to Ian Ashwell for many of the pictures of birds
