Definitely a whole day out. So much to see. Regulars very friendly and happy to help. They even lend out their binoculars in my experience. Great for families and alone too.

Wish I had not waited so many years to find this gem. Great for adults and children with good facilities. This is the best way to show youngsters how important conservation is. Please go and visit as the money raised is invaluable.
