KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 A new vis­i­tor cen­tre is a great ad­di­tion to this ex­pand­ing re­serve run by York­shire Wildlife Trust.

2 There are sev­eral hides around the re­serve with views over carr and reedbeds, so look out for Kingfisher, Wa­ter Rail and the elu­sive Bit­tern.

3 The ex­tended area of Hux­ter­well Marsh has made the re­serve a real draw, with new breeding birds and six hides to view the 180 acres,

4 Look out for species of grebes in the many wa­ter­ways and es­pe­cially where the gulls pro­tect the rare Black-necked Grebe.

5 Wil­low Marsh is well named as bird feed­ers here may give you a view of Wil­low Tit. Lis­ten out for Bearded Tits as you pass the many reedbeds.
