Our fist visit for some time. Friendly staff as usual. Cafe not open. We had a good walk round visiting the bird hides (face mask in place and socially distanced). Great views of Jay, Peregrine, Marsh Harrier and Nuthatch. Lots of ducks and geese o the wetland area plus quite a few waders.

The welcome desk is outside.

The café has a limited menu of drinks and hot snacks. There is seating outside and some socially distanced inside - tables for 4 on each side so there is more room and extra tables that have been taken out stacked on each other in the closed off area.

The visitor centre is open for the shop only.

Toilets are accessed from outside and a one way system signed.

Entrance to the reserve is via the path at the side of the building.

Once on the reserve we didn’t see any difference - the hides are all open (with markings to aid social distancing and notes to leave the windows open) and we had a good walk. There are various signs telling you about management work they are doing though no work was going on during our visit or wildlife and flowers you might see.

I broke my leg and as my first trip out of the house, we decided to go to the cafe at The Brooks. We’re regulars walking around the reserve but this was an all together different visit with a different perspective. From the moment we pulled up and got out of the car, the ladies in the ‘Welcome’ hut were smiling and friendly, they immediately made sure we knew where we were going and which was the best route on crutches. As I hobbled into the cafe, I decided I needed the loo. We went through the shop where two more ladies couldn’t do enough for us. One of the ladies showed us the way and chatted about how my injury came about. Eventually we made it back to the cafe where the ladies at the window were full of character and laughter. Now I will say, my other half is a bit of a character himself and tends to get people chatting but the level of friendliness, kindness and customer service made this a morning to remember. A beautiful place that I was already in love with, I’ve been left even MORE impressed. At all three stations, I was told about various facilities and services available to help me get the most from my visit. I will be back very soon.

Good place to visit for all ages. Firm paths , mostly buggy friendly. 2 coloured routes to follow but no coloured markers to guide you, so we had no idea how to follow the route. The warden just said that you could go right or left when we gave some feedback. Excellent sausages roller and lovely area to sit and enjoy a snack. Good play area for little ones.

We had a wonderful day. It's easy to park and you get a warm welcome from RSPB staff. On our way round we saw some interesting wildfowl. Luckily a volunteer helped us to identify species.
We saw a Buzzard and a kestrel as soon as we arrived so were happy.
We took our own lunch but you can get coffee and a biscuit served from the hatch near the shop area.

We visited this reserve for the first time yesterday afternoon when the rain stopped and the sun appeared and we wanted some exercise. Dug out our membership cards (cost otherwise £7pp) and were greeted warmly by 2 staff outside the reception who got us to scan for the track and trace and explained the trail route and what we might see. There were firm paths which was great given all the recent rain and the hides are clearly signed (though only 2 open), plus there are various nice open air viewpoints.
There was a lot of action when we got to view the main wetland areas - so many birds on the water as well as in flight, perhaps because it was nearing dusk. Big range of ducks inc teal, wigeon and shovelers plus various waders - I think we saw greenshanks although not sure, plus landings and some hawks. The sun setting over the water was also beautiful. And so peaceful - we only passed about 5 other couples in 2 hours of exploring so no issues with social distancing!
Really hope that with lock down this time around RSPB reserves stay open, even if hides are closed, as such a great place for exercise and mental as well as physical wellbeing. Also public footpaths at this time of year are so muddy!

Whilst saying nearby. We walked a circular walk from near the White Horse Inn alongside the River Arun. It took us through the Pulborough Brooks RSPB wetlands site. It is a beautiful setting, particularly at dusk and there are many bird species to observe.

Really helpful, knowledgeable staff, especially Charlie, when we needed to research new binoculars. Thank you, Pulborough!
