    A different time of year to last year’s visit which was in the Spring, so we should see plenty of newly fledged birds before they disperse to their various wintering grounds. Let’s hope there is not too much wind, so we can find Bearded Tits and possibly Bitterns

    Facilities: Café and toilets. Cost £3.00
