Titchfield Haven

Lapwings at Titchfield Haven

Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve near Haven is run by Hampshire County Council and is open Weds-Sundays. There is a charge for visiting the reserve itself which now has 8 bird hides which overlook reedbeds and fields. There are two sides to walk round, one is a boardwalk through trees, the other a mostly gravel path. Parking is free on the nearby shoreline. The reserve is a breeding ground in Summer for Advocets, and in winter sees migratory wildfowl over winter there. Over 200 species of birds have been recorded at the site.

During the warmer months butterflies and dragonflies can also be see there.

One of the hides near the visitor centre – which has a cafe for warming up after visiting and photographing the wildlife, is free to enter and overlooks part of the reeds and some bird feeders.

Do note the opening times as turning up on Monday or Tuesday will be a wasted visit as it is closed on these days. The site has summer and winter opening times – closing at 5.30pm in the summer and 4pm in the winter.

Full information on the reserve and access for disabilities can be found on the reserves website, which includes maps of the reserve and events being held – including guides.
