If you want to see the wildlife close up there are several ways to do this. There are coastal and riverside paths, the towpath alongside the canal and many other footpaths that take you close to nature. There are guided walks thoughout the year which give special information and which sometimes allow access to places that would otherwise be difficult. There are discovery centres, north and south of the estuary, one of which has a CCTV camera which provides a “window on the estuary”. There are also special reserves and visitor attractions where everyone is made welcome.
