Many people might think that bird watching is a boring hobby and find it hard to understand why so many people visit places like Minsmere every year.

However, anyone that actually takes the time to visit such a reserve will surely be able to appreciate its appeal.

Swans and Gulls

The tranquility of somewhere like Minsmere is utterly relaxing and very enjoyable.

Minsmere has over 100 species of birds in residence and a staggering 200 more species pass through every year.

There is so much wildlife it feels more like a rainforest than what you would expect of a bird reserve.

Are you a bird watcher? What do you think of the Minsmere reserve?
