Watercraft Users Notice
Christchurch Harbour and the adjoining nature reserve on Stanpit Marsh and Hengistbury Head are important places for birds and other wildlife. This includes the tidal mudflats that are enclosed by Blackberry Point and two lines of yellow buoys. The approximate positioning of the buoys is shown on the map.
Other than in an emergency, please do not enter the buoyed area (shown hatched in yellow on the map) at any state of the tide as you may disturb the wildlife.
Please also note that landing or launching of boats on any part of the nature reserve (including Blackberry Point) is not permitted. (Local nature reserve bylaws)
