There were lots of pictures of different species of birds, a small play area for children and a documentary about the reserve playing in the centre of the building.There is also a watch tower where people can go to observe the wildlife.

We are not really interested in Birdwatching etc but the exhibits and views here are well worth a visit. Memorable and a little off-beat, this place is a very interesting place that can be combined with a nice walk along the nearby beach.

I like to do photography and there is no shortage of picture taking here, blissfully peaceful, has a small gallery and museum and across the road you have the beach, pleasant day out and no entry fee which is a bonus
