Midweek Visiter - - Front Page -

SEE over 70 species of wild bird, hear from spe­cial guests and get in­volved with pho­tog­ra­phy work­shops at WWT Martin Mere Wet­land Cen­tre’s an­nual ex­trav­a­ganza, the North West Bird Watch­ing Fes­ti­val.

Join us on Satur­day and Sun­day, Novem­ber 24-25 to hear from TV pre­sen­ter Mi­randa Krestovnik­off, wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher Alan He­witt, the Orchid Hunter Leif Ber­swe­den and WWT Project God­wits’ James Robin­son.

There’ll be a range of wildlife talks on through­out each day, and our re­serve man­ager will be giv­ing a daily guided tour of the re­serve, show­ing you all the best bits and in­tro­duc­ing you to our most in­ter­est­ing birds and wet­land an­i­mals.

We’ll also have a num­ber of stalls in our ex­hi­bi­tion hall sell­ing wildlife and bird­watch­ing good­ies, bird­watch­ing hol­i­days and much more.

Novem­ber is a busy month on the mere for Whooper swans; join us and you’ll be able to see a swan feed and talk along­side Shel­duck, Teal, Ti­geon and thou­sands of Pink-footed geese. You’ll also be able to wit­ness our Flood­lit Swans spec­ta­cle from the cosy com­fort of our Raines Ob­ser­va­tory.

Our re­serve team will tell you all about the Whooper swans as they gather to roost on the mere, all beau­ti­fully lit by our flood­lights.

For the keen pho­tog­ra­phers, there will be daily in­ter­ac­tive work­shops on of­fer, full of tips and tricks for get­ting the most out of your cam­era.

The week­end will be a great op­por­tu­nity to net­work with like-minded peo­ple and meet some of the best ex­perts in the in­dus­try.

Our Mere­side Café will be serv­ing a full English break­fast from 9am and lots of tasty treats through­out the day.

Whether you’re a group of pho­tog­ra­phers, a keen bird­watcher or you just love the out­doors, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one to en­joy.
