We found this very disappointing, I know it is a nature reserve, but it is totally overgrown, and the paths are mostly impassable. Really not Worth a visit.

Really peaceful and the last time we saw an osprey. Less so this time, in fact everyone else seems to have seen more than us recently, but it's still great.

This was a pleasant and quiet area. It had information boards around to read and several hides. A good place to stop and have a picnic or a short walk and some photo taking.

Didn't think much of this place but maybe it would be better later in the year. It was cold and lacked atmosphere. Service in the shop was too slow.
