The opening of the Hayling Billy Trail on the bed of the railway line, provided easy access to the Langstone Harbour coastline with its beautiful views. It also opened access to the Local Nature reserve created after the closure of the line and the Oysterbed workings.
The area has much to offer those interested in flora, fauna, safe wind surfing etc.
The magic of the area is completed by the annual breeding colonies on the two islands in the lagoon. Although there is something of interest in the area all the year round, the return of the Tern from Africa is something special.
I shall publish articles on the website about the LNR shortly. In the mean-time, I would invite you to visit my Oysterbed Homepage on my website at > http://www.imageinuk.com/Landscapes/Nature-Reserves/The-Oysterbeds/14084085_2bd5Y.
