“A Must for Naturalists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

Two excellent and comfortable hides and a separate viewing screen.
Good paths even in wet weather.
Large car park with a special area designed for people who cannot leave their vehicles to view the main lagoon.
In just an hour or so clocked up about 40 species plus two Great Crested Grebes doing their elaborate courtship ritual.
But it doesn't end at birds, we saw Bee Orchids and a decent array of butterflies for a cool and windy day.
