Arne

Arne protects an important area of lowland heath. This threatened habitat is home to several rare species of animal and plant. Other habitats on the reserve include woodland, salt marsh and reedbed.
 
Poole Harbour, adjoining the reserve, holds important populations of wintering waders and wildfowl, including the second largest population of avocets in the UK.
 
The RSPB is managing all these habitats for the benefit of their wildlife and to ensure a good visitor experience.
