A short (one and a half miles,) but varied walk with some hides really close to the wildlife. The wildlife can be quite close but binoculars enhance the experience. Very cheap to buy an annual family pass.More

Needing the outdoors we paid a long delayed return visit. It had changed a bit: it was no longer free; but it had been improved a lot. Better hides, footpaths and pond access provided good views of many more types of birds.More
