World Wetland Aviary

Get up close to our large collection of ducks and geese from around the world.


WWT is undertaking conservation work for many of the birds you can see in our collection. Look out for Eider, Red-breasted geese, and Puna teal. We also have one of Europe’s most important populations of Barrow’s Goldeneye!

Learn all about these birds at our daily Diving Duck Talk at 12.45pm (included with admission). And, join our keepers for a Handfeeding Session at 3pm daily (Tickets available from reception for £1.50).

Ask any questions about all your birdy favourites that live here at Castle Espie. And have unmissable, up-close encounters with them in our new World Wetland Aviary.
