Dodger46's review I live Very near this site and have visited it on many occasions, and I have yet to come away disappointed, the sightings are many and varied and one never knows what to expect. As an example I was out on this Marsh on 05/04/06 and I spotted a Ruddy Duck! I very nearly fell out of the hide, I searched in vain for his mate but could not see her - so my guess is that he has "escaped" from a private collection. Just one further item and that is that the Marsh does not have any where near the numbers of migrants that it usually has at this time of year - hopefully this will change over the ensuing weeks. Pros

  • One of the best sites around
