We originally visited the Dunes Country Park and walked along the boardwalk. One side runs parallel with a few lakes, with a few bird hides along the way, but we saw very few flamingos. The N332 runs through the whole area. It's worth heading into...More

A lovely view driving along the motorway, there is one small lay-by however that's where the flamingoes are further and as they are very timid it's hard to take photos. The area also smells a bit but well worth a stop or a drive past...More
