Throughout August families can take part in ‘What’s that wader?’- a self-led trail to discover more about the wonderful variety of wading birds that can be found on the Dee Estuary. Normal admission charges apply to non-members, no additional charge for the event. Available 9.30 am-4.30 pm daily in August.
On any day Explorer Backpacks are available to hire, full of everything needed to discover more about the creatures that call Burton Mere Wetlands home. No booking required, cost £2.50.
To end the month, the ‘Wild Wednesday’ event on Wednesday 31 August will give families the chance to get up close and personal with the tiny creatures living in the mud. From shrimps, to worms, to beetles, they provide a feast for the various wading birds that make their home on the reserve.
