WWT Martin Mere

New reed bed walk

An exciting project has begun at Martin Mere which gets our visitors face to face with some of our more secretive species. We have opened up the Pat Wisniewski reedbed, which will provide a different aspect of Martin Mere’s nature reserve.

This 20ha reedbed allows visitors to explore the area at their own speed through guided pathways. There are already plenty of reedbed specialist species present with Reed and Sedge warblers calling away, and some new species for the reserve Cetti’s and Grasshopper warblers also present. However the most exciting aspect of opening up the reedbed will be what the visitors find, who knows what rare species might turn up and be spotted by our eagle eyed visitor.
