Personally I think you're a piece of crap who should move as far away from Yorkshire as it's possible to get.
You've got a bird site - you swear like a squaddy, reckon Tophill Low's 'shit' because there are some rules. I've been going there since the 70s, long before it was a reserve, and despite such rules are there are - it's an excellent reserve. If you don't like it - don't go - to compare a nature reserve with a nazi prison camp shows the depth of your idiocy.
You're a grade A moron
love it best comment of the year and at least i have an A in something,slightly disappointed it wasnt A+
but come on
10+ speed bumps to the nature reserve! either the locals are nutters or yorkshire water employee's drive like boyracers.
note not 'nice' bumps but the big fuck off lumps of rubber ones
the signs are crap,apart from the ones telling you what NOT TO DO they are funny
the hides are set back 'miles' from the res
imo its just a place to create money for what i dont know,as the res's dont change but the area's that are for nature are overgrown

i headed to the bracken to check for any warblers,when a owl flew up from just below me.the photo below was taken straight away,its crap but you can tell its a long eared owl!
the nearest woodland is 2 miles away so it must be young bird moved on by its parents,it circled above me for a minute then dropped into the bracken some way off.
a cracking bird
