    Tophill Low nature reserve, lies alongside the River Hull and is made up of a patchwork of woodland, marshland and grassland which provide a sanctuary for over 160 types of birds.

    The centre is due to open next summer with a new elevated view point over the reservoir, viewing gallery, telescopes and real time webcam footage showing live scenes from the reserve.
