If you love birds, this is an experience. They are free to fly off and come back. Wonderful to see them in a free environment.

Not a great variety of birds in June. A nice easy accessible hide and a good place to practice your photography skills. An extra branch or two nearer to the hide would be wonderful. The dam has a wonderful history.
