Newport Wetlands lies on the south-eastern edge of the City of Newport along the northern shore of the Severn Estuary. This reserve has extensive areas of lowland wet grassland, reedbeds, saltmarsh and saline lagoons. It is one of the best sites to see wild birds in Wales. This new wildlife reserve (opened in March 2000), on part of the tranquil Gwent Levels, was created as part of the compensation for the loss of the Taf/Ely Estuary SSSI mudflats of Cardiff Bay.
