Site Details

Two lakes divided by a footpath and road bridge. South Lake has waterski tow, windsurfing and pedalos etc., and can be disturbed. South Lake is better for migrant marine ducks and terns. North Lake is a wildlife area and less disturbed. The island has a 'spit' which can attract migrant waders, loafing ducks and the inevitable feral geese. One hide with disabled access.
