Half Term Family Fun at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands

Published: 8th February 2018 13:45

This month sees the British Trust for Ornithology's annual National Nestbox Week take place, and the RSPB is running a fun family quiz trail at Burton Mere Wetlands, near Neston, to help celebrate.

Half Term Family Fun at RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands

Available every day through February, families can pick up a quiz sheet at reception between 9.30am-4.30pm and follow the trails to discover the variety of nestboxes available to help give nature a home. It is free to take part, though normal admission charges apply to non-members.

There are also Wildlife Explorer backpacks for budding nature detectives which are £3 to hire, and the den building area in the woods to get active and creative.

Whilst some winter flocks will be preparing to leave the site towards the end of February, others like the iconic avocets normally start arriving around the middle of the month. Meanwhile, the resident herons and egrets start carrying sticks up to build nests in their treetop colony.

Visitors can now also pick up everything needed for a delicious picnic or to enjoy by the reserve's wood-burning stove, as a selection of locally-made sandwiches are available to buy daily, alongside hot and cold drinks plus a range of snacks.

Venue: RSPB Burton Mere Wetlands nature reserve, Puddington Lane, Burton, Cheshire, CH64 5SF.

Contact: For further details visit rspb.org.uk/burtonmerewetlands or phone the visitor centre on 0151 353 8478.
