“A Lovely Couple of Hours”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We stumbled upon this place, but ended up spending a couple of very pleasant hours there. A lovely peaceful place to walk. There were some families of swans with cygnets, and many other species of birds.

“Lovely and peaceful”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

You can do a short walk for the 2km return walk. The environment is beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed the birds and saw great egret, black swans, water hens etc etc.

Pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this! Great walk, helpful staff but an approximate length would be great! Do it!

“Nice Walk”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This walk would take a couple of hours, at least, and includes wetland hides and a chance to see a few of the local bird-life. There is a list of some of the most recent sightings.
