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!

Lovely little village with a pub and this nature reserve....great for a stroll after Sunday lunch or for nature/bird watching but it’s quite small x

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.

We love this nature reserve and always visit when staying in the area. Lovely well marked and signposted paths lead to several hides. Superb bird watching. The paths are an easy stroll...you can take a short stroll or and longer walk across the reserve. Convenient...More

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

This is truly an amazing venue for bird watchers & photographers. An abundance of wildlife can be found within this beautiful marsh area which is home to Reed Warblers, Marsh Harrier, Kestrel, Kingfisher and plenty more. Also found a grass snake along with Marsh frogs....More
