My Wife & I did the perimeter walk of Thorney Island (you can't go inland as is an Army Base). You can walk on the some of the beaches whilst the tide is out, and is a very good place to do Yacht watching. I would recommend looking at the churchyard, just about all the WW2 burials were guys in their early 20s, and some of the later ones are still quite poignant. We didn't see many birds, even at the RSPB reserve at the southern tip (may have been too windy for them!) but loads of butterflies around. Slight excitement when it came to leaving the island as the buzzer wasn't working on the gate to be let out (the Army control access) but there was a phone number we could ring thankfully, or we would have had to walk back around the island again! We started just after low tide, and by the time we got back to the car park it was high tide so watched the swimmers/canoeists etc. for a bit before leaving. Very pleasant day.
