is a nature reserve comprising a variety of habitats including woodlands, marshes,
heath and beach.
The diversity of habitats results in a superb range of
birds with over 300 species including the elusive Bittern.
Many wetlands are being restored after the loss of many

for spring wildlife.

good for bird watching and pond dipping.
