A great place to visit at any time of the year. Great for Marsh Harriers, Grebe, Moorhen and Coot and so much more. On my first visit a Bearded Reedling was the highlight - beautiful birds.

What a lovely hidden gem this is on our doorstep! We thoroughly enjoyed our lovely wander round the reserve today and are looking forward to returning again soon and following the longer trail. For real nature enthusiasts, this should be a must-visit!

This reserve always has something of interest and has turned up many major rarities. The short walk through the wet wood has resting places and the Reed Marsh Hide view has been enhanced and packed with wildfowl.
