Our wetlands are at their best in the winter months - teeming with ducks, geese and wading birds. We're offering special 'hire a guide' events to help you enjoy the wonderful winter wetlands.

We're offering a 'dawn of the ducks' experience and a 'birding for beginners' workshop as 'hire a guide' events so you'll have a dedicated guide and private use of one of the hides. This means that you'll be in a small group of your family and friends and you can be assured that we're doing our utmost to keep you and our team safe.
