My visit was perfect - the weather was fab, the facilities great, large shop, good restaurant. Lots of information about events and knowledgable and friendly staff. The reserve had a great variety of different bird species, comfortable hides and viewing areas and - last but not least - a beautiful sandy beach. I will be back for a longer visit next time!
