If you visit the reserve during the snowy weather you'll be rewarded with some lovely scenes. The snow completely transforms the reserve.

One of the paths to the pond:
The iron-rich water looks superb from the zig-zag boardwalk. A Woodcock was nearby, on the edge of the pools:

Please take care when visiting the reserve during the snowy weather. Dips and hazards can be hidden by the snow, and slopes can be extra slippery.
A flock of 120 Lesser Redpoll was recorded at the reserve the week before these photos were taken.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the Weald Team,
