Just a few tips to help you on the way:

They do feed during the day but i found the best times are first thing in the morning and last thing at night, they are quiet easy to spot especially around the margins.

I used both Cell & Fusion dumbells there with excellant results, i didn't spod just a light spread (1/2 kilo) various size baits over the area.
I complemented this with a pva stick of ground up boilies and pellets.

The island margins do fish well, as well as the channel between the two islands, and the two disabled swims give you a good chance for these areas.

Keep you eye out down in the back bays, especially near the reeds as these can really hold alot of fish.

A group of us fished it back in March and had over 25 twenties in a 48hr period although we had permission to night fish it, even though many fish didn't come out during the hours of darkness...

I had a few up to 26lbs 11oz, lovely looking Commons and Mirrors, but the average size the group was pulling out was 21-24lbs.

Have a look at my thread for Kingsbury and you will see a few pictures...

Stalking them depends of who else is fishing there....

Just have a real good look round before setting up.

Don't think they allow night fishing as a norm....

Good Luck, keep us posted...
