East India Dock Bird Sancuary

...quite a nice little reserve, didn't spot many interesting birds... except for maybe my squawking sister, who somehow managed to get on the wrong side of the hide :-/..

'East India Dock Basin Nature Reserve is a small Thames-side site based around the former entrance basin of the East India Docks. The reserve includes a tidal lagoon and the closest patch of genuine saltmarsh to Central London, along with a reedbed and small areas of meadow and woodland. 

Owned and managed by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, the reserve is the southernmost section of the Lea Valley Park. It is within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets'
