We walked to the visitor centre to start off with, to feed the birds before the walk. There were many birds to feed and they were all certainly eager!
The walk was mostly flat however we did most of the routs which were advertised in the nature reserve.

During the walk, ever so often a train would go by- this was the pass to have a skittle ( which is my favourite)! We followed the railway track around as our first route but peeled off to another route when the railway line was coming to a turn! Hallway through the route we saw three horses casually eating the grass of course this meant we had the chance to eat skittles! Their was loads of nature to see but no nature I couldn't see if I was walking to the shop ( as an example)!
Overall it was a great day and would like to go again!

Thanks for viewing!
