We visited Sunday opening annual day, totally fantastic place, very friendly staff and really really helpful. We saw Marsh Harriers about every 5 minutes, Spoonbill, Avocet and the last chick, Fox, Kestrel and a Deer and a hawkmoth! Loved every minute

We visited today and wondered where all the birds were this morning. However as the afternoon went on more birds appeared. Flocks of pink footed geese and golden plover flew past and we had good views of the Marsh harriers and waders from the hides...More

Very local to me but is a site that for some reason is very unpredictable with the level of Bird sightings. And to be honest and IMHO the £4 charge is excessive for the facilities that are available. A big plus however is the well...More
