A whole new world of discovery awaits you. Escape the everyday and discover peaceful wetland treasures and secluded spots.


Head to the reedbed walk, accessible from the Harrier hide, for an immersive journey through wetland nature and discover some secretive and rare species. Listen and look out for Cetti’s and Grasshopper warblers, water rails, bitterns and bearded tits as well as Marsh Harriers and Crested Grebes.

The reedbed walk is also home to our newest hide, the Gordon Taylor hide, with spectacular, up close views of large flocks of pink footed geese and other wintering wildlife such as whooper swans, teal, pintail and wigeon. But it’s not just birds that this hide will give you great views of. There are also regular sightings on the reserve of beautiful roe deer, otters and stoat. It truly is one of Martin Mere’s best kept secrets (don’t tell anyone!).
