Arne RSPB reserve is a 500 hectare (1250 acre) nature reserve, run by the RSPB, overlooking Poole Harbour and adjacent to the village of Arne, in Dorset, England.
The reserve opened in 1966 and is chiefly lowland heath, specifically the rare Dorset Heath (Erica ciliaris), noted for its breeding Dartford Warblers. It also has acid grassland, salt marsh and woodland, with reedbeds adjoining the mudflats of the harbour. Other important species include Nightjar, Woodlark and, on the mudflats, Spoonbill.
Over 500 species of vascular plant have been recorded on the reserve, since 1966.
It is also home to the Sika Deer.
