Having lived locally for pretty much my whole life, I was surprised I didn't know about this reserve sooner! My husband and I spent a lovely few hours wandering around the reserve, and were very lucky to spot the beautiful kingfishers. My only grumble would be that the twitchers were out in force with their huge cameras, pretty much hogging the kingfisher hyde for themselves. However, the other hydes were quieter and there is information near them all showing what to look and listen out for! There is the option to leave the reserve and take a longer route via an area where otters have been spotted, but you will have to continue the path around the route; the gate is exit only. There seems to be good disabled access although after heave rain there may be some soggy patches of pathway. I think the carpark was £2 to non-members, and the reserve was free to enter. Take a picnic and enjoy a day out surrounded by nature!
