Join Miranda to see 70 species of wild birds at festival
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.
