Martin Mere Wildfowl Trust

 

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is the largest international wetland conservation charity in the UK. You can have a fantastic day out at Martin Mere seeing, feeding and learning about wetland birds and mammals as the only attraction in the North West that has a beaver enclosure.

WWT Martin Mere is where wilderness and family-friendliness combine. In winter, many thousands of wild ducks, geese and swans are drawn to the internationally-rated wetlands, offering spectacular displays of feather and flight from the comfort of ten hides. In contrast visit the award winning downy duckling experience in Spring as flamingo chicks grow and the duckling nursery opens.

But there is plenty to see and do at Martin Mere all year round, with more than 100 types of rare and endangered water-birds, a family of beavers and enchanting otters in residence, an imaginative playground for young adventurers and an inspirational eco-garden. Seasonal attractions include celebrations of local history and wildlife gardening, and a rolling programme of walks and talks. 

 

Situated less than 3 miles away from our property, a short drive through open fertile farmland will lead you to this attraction.
