Yes - no toilets, but the rest of the courtyard looked open when we drove past. You cannot go on the small walkway at the entrance and there were some sections which were one way. But we had an excellent experience!

Cheers:t:

I have popped in a couple of times along with all the boaters that wander around when moored on the towpath but just to scope the pools from the access track - never bothered going on to the reserve but will now visit 'officially':t:

Good birding -

Hi

It’s basically a figure of 8! Terns mainly on the first pools. Egyptian geese family at the far end of the cross path, if you turn left on entry to the pools section - hope that makes sense! They are regularly visible according to the warden we spoke to on Saturday.

Sometimes Hobbies by the bridge over the Tame, but we did not see any. Worth going over though if you have time.

A first for the region - a female Pallid Harrier - spent its second day today hunting over the reserve.

A first for the region - a female Pallid Harrier - spent its second day today hunting over the reserve.
Now we have 3 species of Harriers for the year with a beautiful male Hen Harrier over Dosthill NR and Jubilee wetlands before heading towards the Hall this afternoon, also a juvenile Marsh Harrier was over North Pit (there has been a female Marsh Harrier around also).
Waders seen today included 10 Golden Plover, 1 Dunlin, 1 Redshank and 6 Snipe. 2 Great White Egret and several Little Egret were also noted.
Yesterday a Bittern was on Dosthill NR viewed from the north screen.
