Nice hides for photography

Here is a big hint-Go to the third hide for the best photographic opportunities with wildlife closet. We saw Avocets, Herons, Bearded Tits, Moorhens, Lapwings, and many more birds.

I have been coming here weekly for 15 years and have always seen something memorable. The Reception staff are very helpful and the hides are all on a flat walk, easily accessible and have something different to offer in each. Currently the star species is a pair of breeding Montagu's Harriers (Uks rarest breeding bird of prey) visible from all... More

Never been here before, what a fantastic reserve. On reaching the reception building we found everyone very informative and helpful. Within minutes we were looking at Marsh Harriers flying around, brilliant. All the observation hides are close to the reception. They are all worth visiting. We spotted many different birds including a pair of Montague Harriers. Well done RSBP.

Nature as it should be seen.So much to enjoy from rare tree sparrows to the magnificent harriers hunting over the marshes. You don't have to be an anorak to enjoy the spectacular wildlife.

This was our 1st visit & it is now very well signposted after turning offf M62 at junction 36. The RSPB have done a great job here.This is a compact, well designed reserve, not far for anyone to walk with all but one hide accessible to wheelchairs or buggies on flat wide paths. The hides are large-plenty of viewing windows... More

Not been to the reserve for 20 years . Its not changed much apart from now having a toilet block and decent car park . But who needs change when its such a great place to see birds . A good number of hides overlooking the pools and a small visitor centre . Worth the effort to get there .

Visited on a sunny afternoon in late december. Plenty of people around, very friendly and great excitement caused by two bearded tits right next to the path. Six hides, lovely peaceful place. Toilets and picnic tables. The main reception is only open weekends in the winter so didnt get a much needed hot drink...

if you're a keen bird watcher or a general nature lover then this is a great place to visit. Tranquil, packed with wild-life including a host of bird species, frogs & newts. A great place for an afternoon out with the family then finish it off with lunch in one of the many local pubs nearby. Free car parking too.
