We were very lucky with a calm day and reflections on the lake !! Mornings probably preferable but the water birds will be there at any time really. Also a nice 2 --3 km walk / stroll around whatever time of the day. Summer evenings are also lovely but not sure off hand what time the reserve closes. Without going into the reserve ( paid entrance) you can also walk along a pavement on the road adjacent to the reserve for similar views and benefit of exercise between buses and planes !!
