    Is it worth going on Sunday? Has all of the water been drained?

    Yes, I went on the 10th of April. Major renenvations. A very nice place though. I would like to go more often, but it takes over an hour to get there.

    Britain is really getting a beating weatherwise at present- wind rain, floods etc though not everywhere of course- but its hardly what you think of as summer weather. I'm hoping to visit a few zoos shortly but waiting for a change for the better before I do.

    Thanks. I have rang up blackbrook, and they said tat it was heavy drizzle. Any more updates would be gratefully appreciated.

    Would pheasants be out in this type of Weather? They are the main species that I'm going to see.
