A local private holiday home site owner opened a nature reserve next to his property
Like most of these holiday establishments its very popular with dog owners.
He's erected a huge sign at the entrance banning dogs. So far so good every time I've been- no dogs seen.
The reserve has only been going two years and breeding birds include Lapwing and Little Grebe plus lots of birds taking up the 50 nest boxes on site.
It attracts huge numbers of Teal in winter plus, Wigeon, Gadwall, Grey Heron, Shoveller, Tufted Duck, Marsh Harrier, Barn and Tawny Owl and so on.
