Enjoy a Floodlit Swan Spectacular at WWT Martin Mere
In a truly unique wildlife spectacle, WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre is offering you the opportunity to watch our wild swans in the floodlight.
Floodlit swan events will be held every Tuesday evening in January. With over 1500 Whooper Swans currently on the Mere, and numbers expected to increase over the following months, this event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see huge numbers of wild swans in their natural habitat.
From the comfort of the heated Raines observatory you will see beautiful wild swans at close quarters with a fascinating live commentary and Q&A session from the wardens.
This event is ideal for families and groups and starts promptly at 6.30pm until 8pm. Booking is essential for this event and it costs £10.10 adult, £7.40 concession and £4.90 per child. Advance booking is required, please book online at www.wwt.org.uk/floodlitswan or call 01705 895181.
