Still a new 'attraction', the RSPB site at Burton Mere is a work in progress. The pleasant but basic visitors centre doubles as an excellent hide overlooking a wide panorama of wetland. On a practical note, plenty of parking & good toilet facilities are already in place. Shortish distances from the centre take you to 2 other hides and walking trails. There are certainly a lot of birds to watch at any given time. Admittedly many on our visit were 'just' geese but that is the joy of watching wildlife - no guarantees so every unusual or unknown sighting is a bonus. A peregrine falcon had been entertaining the visitors on our day for instance.
If I have a grumble it would be general to many RSPB sites - most of the wardens are always more interested in excitedly talking to each other whilst staring down exotic cameras and telescopes than they are in interacting in any way with 'ordinary' visitors! This elitist behaviour is the main reason I have never wanted to join.
A visit to Burton Mere is recommended. An interesting and beautiful spot and the site can only continue to improve and mature.
