News - New Year's Day 2010 - the Visitors' Centre Extension, and Bearded Tits

As is customary on New Year's Day, the Reserve was packed with people enjoying the two RSPB guided tours, and the Visitors' Centre was busy warming people up with tea, coffee and soup after spells outside in the bitterly cold but sunny weather.
For many people, this was the first time they'd benefitted from the brand new extension to the Vistors' Centre. There's now twice as much open space, an office, additional storage, and more space for The Friends to serve refreshments.

Out on the reserve, those who'd wrapped up well were rewarded with views of bearded tits (strictly, bearded reedlings); very rare visitors.
