Two mile circular walk so much wildlife to see. Great hides to get awesome view of so many types of bird. The shop has it all and very friendly staff. Large free car park. Either join RSPB while you are there or £5 each.

Accessible for those with difficulty walking, although the gravel path can be difficult in places if using a wheel chair; a range of habitats that each were home to numerous birds. A thoroughly enjoyable day spent here.More
