Here you can enjoy a newly created wetland, which provides a safe home for many rare species including water voles and otters. In spring the reedbeds are alive with birdsong and in autumn you can see kingfishers flashing up and down the ditches. Bitterns are seen regularly all year round. There is disabled access to this reserve by RADAR key. Events are held throughout the year for families and for those who want to learn more about wildlife. Please note that the car park has a 6'6" height restriction.Our future plans involve a new reception building; a play trail at the new 'Mini' Marshes Area; toilets; new two story hide at the north side of the reserve.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
A good number of events take place through the year. These focus on the wildlife of the reserve and are lead by friendly, informative staff and volunteers.
Good facilities provide easy family access, with a range of events held through the year and good information service at weekends from April to October.
