Stroll down a shell-white beach, marvel at the summer colour as the flowers bloom along the sand dunes, and keep your eyes peeled for the most elusive of birds. You'll probably hear the corncrake's distinctive rasping call between May and July – but will you see one? If you don't, there are still plenty of lapwings and redshanks to watch, not to mention large flocks of geese in the winter.
Open at all times. Please avoid walking through fields of hay and crops. Information bothy and corncrake viewing bench at Totronald.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
Dogs are only allowed on public footpaths and bridleways. Please keep dogs under proper control.
Note: Some reserves are not served directly by public transport and, in these cases, a nearby destination (from which you may need to walk or take a taxi or ferry) may be offered.
