Details

This 10km walk will start at Gwent Wildlife Trust’s Magor Marsh reserve, walking to the coast and then following the Wales Coastal Path to Goldcliff Lagoons where we will transport people back to Magor.

The event is timed to coincide with high tide so that the wealth of wintering waders and wildfowl that abound in the Severn Estuary will be pushed up closer to the sea wall and much easier to see. We should also get to see the first spring migrants making landfall along the coast of Wales as they travel north to breed.

Previous years have had highlights of Marsh Harrier and Glossy Ibis as well as the tumbling display flights of Lapwing.

Directions

Exit the M4 at Junction 23A and follow signs into Magor village on the B4245. On entering Magor continue through the village and then take a turning on the right signposted Redwick. Follow the road round to the right soon afterwards (also signed Redwick), and then follow the road past the ruins of the Priory on your left and over a narrow railway bridge. Turn left immediately after the railway bridge and follow this road for about 400 metres, and the reserve entrance is on the right. Park in the small car park beside the Trust’s Derek Upton Centre (grid ref: ST 428 866). This education centre is used by school groups during term time, but it is not open to the general public except for special events.

From Newport there is a local bus service (Number 61) which stops directly outside the reserve. Other bus services run to Magor village.
