Enjoy a close-up view onto a wonderful cliff-side nesting colony, with binoculars and telescopes provided. You'll be able to watch guillemots, razorbills and puffins all raising their young, while live television pictures give you an even closer view of the nests! Rare choughs can also be seen on the reserve. In spring and summer, the heathland becomes a riot of colour. Look closely and you may see a basking adder, while out to sea there may be porpoises and dolphins.
The RSPB reserve is open all year-round. The Visitor Centre, with shop and cafe, is open from 10 am to 5 pm daily (except Christmas Day), and Ellin's Tower Seabird Centre is open from 10 am to 5 pm from Easter to September.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
This reserve is good for birdwatching in spring and summer only.
There are interactive materials available in Ellin's Tower with wonderful live images and telescopes and binoculars for you to use. We can also give you some Wildsquare bingo sheets to help your family discover nature on the reserve. We always plan family-friendly events with activities tailored for children.
Dogs are welcome on the reserve and in Ellin's Tower, but aren't allowed inside the cafe for hygiene reasons. Please keep your dog on a lead and stick to the paths. Drinking water is provided for dogs in bowls at the doors of the Visitor Centre and Ellin's Tower.
