Dear birders

I found out one cant just walk round the reserve, but need guided tour.

If I go again I wanna find out more info in advance. I find very little info about this particular place online esp in English.

There are 2 parts, with a road and dyke in between. One area is an enormous reedbed, and the other is a reservoir. There are viewing towers you can use on Kanyavari Island. One part is out of bounds.
You will also find that there is a ringing camp near Fenekpuszta, which is on road 71. You can drive close and walk along some dykes and see good birds.
