Wonderful facility to visit to view Ospreys on their nest. A few telescopes and television screens giving great views of the activity. Staff are very well informed and answer any questions. Very good boardwalks to reach this facility.

Excellent conservation and wildlife project with Osprey and water buffaloes. Great little walk (1km) to hides. Plenty of volunteers, free loan of binoculars and telescopes. See online the webcam. Get inspired for bird watching. Tea shop and loos.

Very friendly and informed staff. Happy to help and answer a lot of questions from the kids! The lizards on the way back were entertaining and the whole set up is very good. An excellent two hours with the family!

Knowledgeable staff on site made this visit worthwhile. The nest is obviously a long way off to protect the birds, but the camera's make it feel that they are close to you.

This is a wonderful project. The 360 observatory gave us a fabulous view of 2 of the 3 Osprey fledglings. Such beautiful birds and such important conservation work happening here. Great homemade cakes in the little cafe too. Highly recommended.

A bargain at £4 - take the time to visit all the hides and stop on the way to 360 observatory - the Ospreys are amazing but the view from the observatory is also great and saw Peregrine, great white egret and buzzard as well....More
