The birds found here are entirely wild and behave in exactly the same way that they would outside of the reserve’s boundaries. They are not given additional food or kept in a semi-captive state.
Some of them, used to the discreet presence of members of the public, allow humans to come much closer than would be the case outside the reserve.
The reserve is internationally renowned in the field of nature photography. In the space of a few years, it has become a Mecca for many photographers, both professional and amateur, novices and experts, all of whom find plenty of material here from which to fashionoriginal or striking images, and above all, to enjoy themselves!
The main advantages of the site are: the wide variety of habitats and species, the fact there is always a good chance of seeing interesting wildlife events or behaviour at any given time of the year, the almost disconcerting proximity of the birds, their growing familiarity with human beings, the design and siting of the viewing points, not to mention the near constant presence of photographers who know the reserve well and who can therefore supply newcomers with practical information and technical tips.
