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.

A protected area for wildlife and plants. We enjoyed a gentle saunter and relaxed as we explored this well preserved habitat

This reserve is ideally located overlooking St Ouen's Pond, with parking conveniently just across the road and a good place for refreshment adjacent. The centre is well positioned, with good views over the pond and the scrape just in front of the hide. Some less common birds to be seen, Marsh Harrier, Water Rail, Meadow Pipit (good show feeding young) Common Snipe and White Wagtail. We made this a regular call anytime we were in the vicinity, just an hour then coffee before travelling on.
Good location for birders or simply visitors interested in seeing birds in a natural setting.

We spent about an hour here and saw a March Harrier and a number of breeds of wildfowl in the centre. Unfortunately we had to leave when a couple brought their noisy children who managed to shout sand scare the birds away.

We went to the 2nd hide which is about 5 minutes walk away along a pathway lined with butterflies. There wasn't as much to see here but it was very relaxing.

Visited with my partner on Wednesday 18th July at approx 4.00pm.
It is advertised as open 7am - 7pm. But is was all locked up. We rang the bell at the door, to no avail.
We had travelled by hire car from St Helier. Not good for tourism.
Left the Island Thursday morning, otherwise I would have gone to complain in person.
