Thanks for the great review. We think it is (one of) the best RSPB reserve too! :) Good to hear our staff made such a positive impression. Hope you'll come back soon.

This is a great nature reserve but needs you to take flask and picnic. The walks are really good with loads of wild life to view. Apart from the mian roadway its not very pushchair/wheelcahir friendly however. Worth a walk on a warm spring day!

Day trip by Carsington Bird Club. At least 60 species seen by group of 12. Highlights were little stint, Merlin and cattle egret. Lots of black tailed godwits. Long-billed Dowitcher proved elusive. Tea/ coffee machine and small selection of filled rolls, and snacks.
