This is not a place for people who like tranquility and peace, the busy M42 runs right through the middle of the area and, depending on the wind, you can smell it too. dont bother. I will never go back again, far too noisy.

Took my dogs for an early morning stroll here. This was my first visit and won't be the last. Dogs are only allowed access to some areas but those areas are big enough for a good walk. Lovely to hear the sounds of the birds in the trees especially at spring time.

Great place for a leisurely stroll and stopping to look through the binoculars. We did manage to see a willow tit and a goldfinch as well as the more popular birds such as robins; black birds and starlings. There were lots of waterbirds highlighted with a close up of a beautiful heron. Lovely afternoon.

Great variety of waterbirds and excellent view of the heronry. Paths amd bridleway a bit muddy so wear suitable footwear if damp!

We visited the RSPB Reserve close by Middleton Lakes, parking behind the Hall and following the waymarked footpaths through the woodland. The route is well defined and good underfoot, suitable for mobility scooters or wheelchairs as well. There are various side routes off the main path which look good for exploring or resting-up if you need a break. Twenty mins... More

found this place by accident!...not very well signposted and the approach is off the beaten track & a bit dusty but well worth it. Once you get onto the RSPB site it is immaculate with ample parking. There were no staff on site when we arrived and could not find where to pay, after checking the notice board it said... More

Visited 28/10/16 - half term is not good for birds! However I got some decent pictures around the feeders by the Heronry - Tits, Finches and Woodpeckers. Weather overcast. Easy walking distance to Middleton Hall for cafes and toilets.

Easy to find and adequate parking. Footpaths in mainly good order. Dogs allowed entry to most areas on a lead. Good variety of wildfowl and insect life. Cafe adjacent to the site.
