It's all about the birds here - you won't find toilets or a fancy visitors centre and you won't find walkways into sensitive areas. Just enjoy the walk!

We live about 30 minutes away. This is a fantastic reserve and we have seen Barn Owls, Swifts, Curlew and Badgers. The starling murmurations in Winter are a must see although best to avoid weekends as the car park fills up very quickly.

Very nice little nature reserve. Saw several different types of birds. Limited parking and quite muddy in the winter, so come prepared. Will definitely go back.

Although there are no amenities there this is a great place to watch wildlife especially birds. With different types of habitats at the various hides the tick number can be quite high

First visit here and will definitely be returning. Nicely spread out with good quality hides. We saw two cuckoo's and a crane which was a first for us in the UK. Worth a visit!

Came here on a sunny day and got extremely lucky with the wildlife. Saw about 10+ grass snakes basking by the river side, birds of prey including a marsh harrier, frogs, a woodpecker and even saw a weasel scurry along the path ahead of us!...More
