Tophill Low is one of the best bird watching spots in Britain
Whether you’re a keen twitcher or simply love to be outside surrounded by the nature, Tophill Low nature reserve is a must to go and visit.
After significant investment in a wildlife viewing centre Tophill Low is now recognised as one of the best bird watching spots in Britain. This amazing site is only five miles from Wold Escapes. So if you’re staying with us in a bed and breakfast rooms or one of our glamping cabins, Tophill Low is definitely worth a visit.
The 300 acre nature reserve, owned by Yorkshire Water, lies alongside the River Hull and is made up of a patchwork of woodland, marshland, grassland, and two large reservoirs with 12 hides spread over the site. During the course of the year the reserve is sanctuary for over 160 types of birds, with over 60 readily visible even in mid-winter. Tophill Low has been awarded SSSI status for these massive wildfowl numbers.
The reserve is open daily from 9am to 6pm and it is thoroughly recommended to bring a pair of binoculars and a basic bird book to help you get the most out of your visit. If you’re very patient and have a keen eye or maybe even a just a spot of good luck you may see a Red Kite, a Kingfisher or even a Great Egret.
