“Sadly right by a busy road”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

There are some interesting birds here and lots of bunny rabbits but sadly the main part is viewed from a very busy road though the end part they do allow you to walk in.

“Splendid idea”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

Although not a twitcher, this is a real nice place to park up opposite the Mount,take you camera or Bino's and just watch for a while,you may be surprised at the variety of birds. If not a bird fan watch the Rabbits, they are hilarious.

“Yellow irises”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

I love this little nature reserve in the spring, when it's one of the few places I know that has yellow irises growing wild. I always walk from the bus stop by Long Rock up the road to pick up the bit of St Michael's Way that crosses the reserve. I'm not a particular fan of bunnies but it's a novelty to be able to get close to them and there's always a heron or two as well. It's no less spectacular in winter, with ice on the marshes. There's a public loo in Marazion, ten minutes' walk away.

“Birding - and oh so many rabbits - on the way to St. Michael's Mount”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

If you're walking to St. Michael's Mount, Marazion Marsh Nature Preserve is a great place to take a short break and see some wonderful wildlife. I expect folks who live near there don't think rabbits are anything particularly special, but they are there by the hundreds, which was quite a sight! On account of the rabbits, do be very careful where you step; their burrows dot the entire marsh, including the pathways (how inconsiderate of them!) and a turned ankle would be most tragic if you were planning to continue on to The Mount.
Most folks go for the birding - they have a list of species seen on their website. That requires a bit more time and patience. But if you are travelling with children, they will certainly enjoy the pretty marsh and the rabbits, even if you see no especially rare birds.
