Ei mitään merkintöjä, mistä lintutornille pääsee, vaikka kartta ja kaikki löytyy. Olisi pitänyt kääntyä kohti punaista hökkeliä, jonka takaa lähti polku kohti lammasaitausta. Huom! Koirilta pääsy kielletty aitauksen läpi. Lintutornilta polku jatkui niin kosteana, että siitä ei kuivin jaloin läpi päässyt heinäkuussa eikä kierroksella ollut mitään nähtävääkään. Turha reissu mutta tulipa tehtyä.

Reilun kilometrin päässä oleva uimaranta oli hyvä laavuineen, vaikkakin polttopuut pitää olla omasta takaa mukana.
