  • Great walk around the coast but could do with the markers on the way there to be uncovered.
  • RSPB visitor and interpretation centre. Take a walk along the headland to see numerous wildlife and wildflowers and sandy beaches. We heard a corncrake but did not see it. Allow about 2 hours for the circular walk.
  • just arrived after long walk along beach a very welcoming sight to see the sign for the dunes catering very welcoming lady's bacon sandwich lemon drizzle cake and tea and sausage meat for tyson the dog five stars lady's
  • One of the best RSPB sites to see birds and meadow flowers, spent over 4 hours birdwatching on a walk with my wife seeing Corn buntings, Skylarks, Artic terns, Turnstones, Fulmars, Ring plovers to name just a few. We had a picnic lunch on the beach, just us and the birds, wonderful.
  • Nothing spectacular landscaped level but if you are passionate about ornithology worth walk the walk through the reserve, possibly accompanied by a guide. The path starts from a small visitor center with free access, bathrooms and parking.
