“The gentle walks meander through beautiful wetland, woodland and grassland and offer the chance to get close to elegant egrets, brilliant butterflies and lounging lizards, who bask on wooden fences soaking up the sun’s warmth.”
Families visiting the reserve can follow the ‘Marvelous Moths’ quiz trail to learn about some of the creepy crawlies that only come out after dark. Plus, there’s lots of other fun family activities to take part in, from hiring a Wildlife Explorer backpack, complete with minibeast kit, mini binoculars and more to having a go at den building or even just enjoying a picnic with family and friends.
The Marvellous Moths self-led quiz trail is available daily from 9.30 am-4.30 pm until the end of June. All activities are free of charge but normal reserve admission charges apply for non-RSPB members.
