Top things to do in Winter
  1. Look out for large flocks of greylag geese which are worth checking for more unusual species, and huge flocks of wigeon, mallard and teal
  2. Whooper swans using the reserve to roost and surrounding farmland to graze
  3. Birds of prey regularly patrol the reserve in winter, especially hen harriers. Their presence will be revealed if you look carefully any time other birds fly up in panic
