“Brilliant birding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Loved everything about this place. Bittern from viewing platform started the day off with a bang! More hobbies than have seen before, great white egret flying majestically about, cuckoo, assorted warblers and a very handsome male garganey were the highlights of a really lovely day out

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

If you like a flat walk, with lots of "destinations" (bird viewing areas) to pause at, lots to see and a sense of being away from it all when actually you are not....this is the place for you! Please however do drive slowly through the villages to get there!! this is our home! and please park sensibly if the car park is full!

“The Great Outdoors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

If you like walking in unspoilt countryside and bird watching this is the place for you. It really is some of the best of the somerset levels and can be so peaceful and tranquil.
Its also the place for the annual starling migration which prompted me to make a film...there is a short sampler on tube: http://youtu.be/i1yELMbvsgc
Its also a great place for cycling, nice and flat.
Enjoy!

“Fantastic and Free”

Lovely reserve, even in the rain, and managed to bag the Pied Billed Grebe that was there. Worth a visit.

“Starling city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

It would be very difficult to see more birds in one place at the same time, magical! If a little hard to find...
