Dusty’s GIANT Easter Duck Hunt

Posted in All

WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre has lost some rather special ducks.  A number of our GIANT yellow ducks have gone missing and we need children to help us and Dusty Duck find them this Easter holidays as part of Dusty’s GIANT Duck Hunt.

You’ll need to use all your special detective skills to track down these 25 cheeky birds and be in with a chance of winning a yummy chocolate treat and a certificate (It is 50p to enter).

Dusty Duck is WWT’s new children’s character, exclusively designed by the world-famous Aardman studios to help us get children closer to nature.

This year for the first time Dusty will be joining our annual GIANT duck hunt.  He will help children use their finely honed detective skills to track down elusive GIANT yellow birds hidden high and low around our stunning grounds in return for a delicious chocolate treat.

Nick Brooks from WWT said:“Our wardens are great at counting up all the baby ducklings, goslings and cygnets waddling around our visitors’ feet at centres during the Easter holidays. But for some reason they keep missing these cheeky GIANT yellow rubber ducks – so come along to your local wetland centre and help us find them!”

As well as the GIANT duck hunt, Martin Mere also have a range of other family activities during the Easter holidays, including boat tours, crafts, den building, pond dipping, otter talks and feeds and take to the water on our canoe safari.  For a full range of Easter holiday activities click here: wwt.org.uk/martinmere
