The view from the tram over the wetlands was lovely. There are special places to view the birds and lovely walks around the area. Definitely worth a visit especially if you are a bird watcher.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting today - the paths and hides were excellent. I particularly enjoyed the beautiful wildflowers growing here in abundance - campion, hogweed, buttercup, oxeye daisy, thrift and ragged robin. Heard some warblers, and enjoyed spotting the heron and egret. Beautiful views over...More
