Nice place to walk the dog and enjoy nature. The trail only goes up and down and is part of a long distance path.

Because you are not allowed into the Nature Reserve you have to view from the road above. Great if using binoculars or a good long distance lens but otherwise it is hard to spot the birds.

Found this reserve today and had a look it is quite impressive even though you can only view from outside. Plenty of life there and well worth visiting

For an RSPB reserve it is quite small and has no facilities other than a public footpath. However that doesn't mean it's not worth visiting. For the birder it has an outstanding record from breeding Cetti's Warblers to wintering Bitterns and Firecrests, and then there's...More
