  • I attended Birdfair 2016 here which was excellent. However the reserve itself is first rate. Loads of hides and trails to get lost in and some excellent viewing opportunities. Decent facilities on-site as well.
  • Amazing work by many volunteer enthusiasts to make wildlife available to the public to enjoy. We are definitely coming back for birdwatching
  • Wonderful reserve. Lots of easy to access hides with great species to watch and beautiful views. Nice visitors centre.
  • Lovely informative place on a beautiful lake, lots of wildlife to sea including Osprey and their young. Also a good place to start your cycle trip around the lake from. They sell ice cream and hot drinks from a vending machine. To access the actual nature reserve is a little expensive
  • Beautiful scenic area easily reached car Wonderful walks
