Site Details

An extensive area boasting a range of habitats from sandy beaches, a golf course, lakes, marsh and gardens attractive to passerine migrants. In recent autumns, the huge potential of the area to produce rare and scarce vagrants is slowly being realised, with Blue-winged Teal and a host of Nearctic shorebirds having been found.
