Just ahead you can see the wetland stretching out to the edge of this wildlife site. It is home to pond sedges, reeds and willows. Birds of prey, like the Kestrel, Buzzard and Tawny Owl can be seen hunting here for small rodents like voles and mice.
Take a moment to watch and listen to the reeds moving in the breeze, tune out the traffic noise and lift your head up to look for birds and feel the sunshine on your face. Take a deep breath and let go of all your worries and enjoy living in the present moment.
Here you can go ahead and cross the bridge to the lower grassland, well worth the extra steps and time, or turn left and follow the path through the wet woodland.
