Walking your dog around Bunny Meadows, Warsash

With Shona and our guest rescue dog Mac

A wildlife-aware dog walk with our canine expert Shona and her doggy companion, Mac, around Bunny Meadows, Warsash.

Start point

Mudflats and Estuaries

These are important food sources for the birds so please let them stock up for the winter in peace.




There are multiple sluices going under the path at Bunny Meadows. These can have very strong currents and are dangerous so make sure your dog stays on the path with you.




Starting point

Park at Passage Lane car Park (SO31 9FR). There is a nice grassy area and bins here for a doggy toilet stop before the main walk – and public toilets for humans.

Dog walking at Bunny Meadows, Warsash


Woodland Loop

After crossing the bridge there is a path you can take into the woodland. This gives your dog a change of environment for extra sniffs and reduces disturbance to the birds.



Spot the signs

You may spot the amber pawprint way-marker asking you and your dog to stay on the path. There are also signs about the area being a site of special scientific interest and a nature reserve, as well as asking you to pick up after your dog: because we all need to do our part to protect our natural world.


Off lead time

After being so well behaved around the birds, you can always take your dog down to Strawberry Fields for a quick run around.

Mac the lurcher

Shona took Mac the lurcher on her walk around Bunny Meadows. Mac, a sweet, lovable lurcher who loves a good cuddle. Mac was up for adoption at Second Chance Animal Rescue based in Southampton.
