Description

Too many bird varieties to name here but it offers the chance to see local and migratory birds and offers them a chance for feeding and nesting. The reserve is right next to the beach so there a two main areas to watch birds. It's also five minutes drive from the town for either sit in or picinic style, food and drink.
