On the Manhood Peninsula, south of Chichester you can explore two wild and wonderful RSPB reserves: RSPB Pagham Harbour and RSPB Medmerry offering important and plentiful habitats to all kinds of bird life from waders to birds of prey, as well as a host of other animals and insects. The unspoilt stretches of shoreline at Selsey are home to all kinds of marine life while offshore discover mackerel, crab, lobster, maybe even a pipefish if you’re lucky. Seals are often seen in the clear waters and sometimes even on the shore.
