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.

Wonderful place to watch birds. Many raptors and other marsh loving birds. Good hides and a very undisturbed spot of natural countryside.
