Great for a bit of peace and to use the binoculars to see if you can spot any rare birds. Parking over the road and it’s open quite long hours.

Outstanding if you love wildlife. A trip to the main centre and bird hide is well worth it to see some of the interesting waterbird found on St Ouen's Pond. Make sure you take your binoculars (even though some are provided). Intend to spend at...More
