  1. I I was introduced to this wonderful place by a dog walker a friend of mine as I’ve just taken up photography and looking forward to having some nice times

  2. Just go there, walk around & enjoy a tiny part of England that is not run by selfish people who care only about themselves, or march through our towns telling us we are all going to die next week.
    Go there & simple enjoy being out in a place that asks nothing from you but can give you so much, if you have the wit to see it.

  3. My haven during the COVID-19 lockdown.
    Just seen (23 May) my first Spotted Flycatcher of the year alongside the "island" path.
    Counted 12 Common Terns on the roof of the hide.
