Lovely day out bird watching. Saw black tailed godwit and many other waders. Not as varied as slimbridge but more open. Would definitely recommend and go back despite the curlews hiding from me!

I joined the WWT based on this visit. It was a well presented and easily accessible centre and the opportunity to hire the bikes to explore the 100 acres offered away from the bird areas was certainly a must.
