What you apologising for Phil? I'm just sorry no-one has answered your query as yet.

It's a long time since I've been there, but Walney Island may be good. I remember going there once and we spent a very enjoyable couple of hours.

There's a variety of habitats including fresh and brackish water pools. You can zoom in on that map from the controls on the right to get a more detailed map. I remember there was at least 1 hide, what what condition they're in now after winter weather, I couldn't say.

There's another reserve at Hodbarrow, which came recommended, but we didn't manage to get there sadly.

Depending on tides, you should get some wintering wildfowl there, or anywhere along the coast.

Hope these ideas help.
