The reserve team have been very busy recently. Along with contractors, a viewing mound is in the process of being built at the end of the Reedbed Trail on the reserve:

If you are not sure where this is on the reserve, a reserve map can be found here. This will provide reserve visitors with a focal point at the end of the trail. It will also make it easier to see the bitterns, marsh harriers and bearded tits that call the reserve home. 

A gravel surface has been put on the slope up to the mound so it is ready to use. Why not come and visit the reserve soon and try it out for yourself? We hope to see you soon.
