  • Old Moor is the place to see all the amazing birds that you usually just see in books, and if you're really lucky you will hear the boom of the Bitten. You will probably never see this one bird becaus...  more »
  • Old Moor is always worth a visit for the walks around the scrapes and the reedbeds. But it is also a reliable spot to see some nationally rare species. Close to the visitor centre you often see Bullfi...  more »
  • Well signposted from M1 - some of the RSPB reserves are not so well signed. Very helpful in Reception and showed us the best places for a walk. A lot of really good work has been done to make this a l...  more »

  • Brilliant experience. My grandchildren loved the pond dipping and playground and the older ones were also impressed with the birds they could see from the family hide. As a wheelchair user, the paths in places were difficult to negotiate but that was largely due to extremely wet weather over the last few weeks. Next time we visit I will use one of the heavy duty mobility scooters available. Highly recommend the experience to all
  • Another visit to one of our favourite RSPB reserves. Sun and showers but plenty of birds to see, hides well placed and a good shop (books, bird feed and feeders plus binoculars and scopes, gifts etc,) and a good cafe. Understandably limited range of main meals but plenty snacks and cakes and good coffee. We will be back again.
  • A great family destination for a day out in the great outdoors. Plenty of parking, excellent visitor centre and toilets, lovely café, well signposted walks, activities for the kids, and best of all, really good staff and volunteers! Oh, and there are some birds, too!!
  • Well worth a visit. Well laid out and easy to get round. It depends when you go to what you may see but you will always see something of interest.
  • Beautiful walks around the reserve. Great views from the hides. Depending on the time of year, huge varieties of birds to be seen. Then when you come in a lovely tea room/café for some warm up time.
