It's wilder than you might think.

Wetland wonders

We have finished all our wildlife scrapes now, and await to see what wildlife uses them, otter pug marks were evident in the soft excavated mud around some of the pools. We do ask visitors to keep to all our main paths, to minimise any disturbance to all wildlife.  Keep an eye out as bat activity is increasing, its well worth coming and walking our self guided trails, bat detectors can be hired from the visitor centre.We are finishing off some footpath work around the wider estate to improve access and drainage, and created a small picnic area and built picnic tables to go down near the nature reserve information point.
