PLEASE NOTE: Because the Enviro-loo Toilet on No.3 bed is out of order and closed we are pleased to inform you that we have now installed a new convenience for your convenience!!
A Portaloo is now situated adjacent to the footbridge. As part of the hire charge it will be cleaned and sanitised on a regular basis. As you can imagine there will be additional costs to the charity (WECG) so any donations to the loo fund would be most welcome. Click here to donate….

Change in closing time from 6th May 2022 The Reserve open time has been extended from 08:00hrs to 20:00hrs commencing from Friday 6th May 2022 and will remain in operation until further notice.
There is only one footpath on No3 bed which runs in a circle inside the perimeter bund with signposted access paths leading off to the various hides. All other tracks you may see are access tracks for maintenance work or warden survey workers which will be signposted, ‘No Entry’ or taped off. Please do not enter these tracks. At times you may see unmarked tracks to ringing nets when bird ringing is in process, PLEASE DO NOT approach these nets as your presence will agitate any birds caught and may lead to injury to the birds. All bird ringers are licensed by the British Trust for Ornithology.
