Description

The Western Yar Estuary is within the Isle of Wight's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  Take a walk or bike ride up the estuary on the old railway track to Yarmouth.  There's lots to see and the saltmarshes make a great home for all sorts of wildlife, especially the Common Redshank.  The walk will take around an 45mins to an hour each way.
