When to visit?
Timing your visit to when few other visitors are present such as dawn or dusk, or even when the weather is not so good, could mean that there has been less disturbance and could lead to that once in a lifetime sighting.
Whilst you are there
- Please keep to paths wherever possible
- Be considerate to others, particularly in bird watching hides
- Follow the countryside code - close all gates
