WWT Martin Mere

Swans Awake

Sat 5 January - Sat 26 January

(Saturdays only)

Time: 7am

Price: £16pp. This price includes a full English breakfast.

Experience the haunting sound of the whooper swans as they wake on the mere and have the thrill of an early morning hide visit with a warden.

Watch as thousands of swans, geese and other wildlife awaken and take off in a honking flurry - you won't see a better sight in nature! The beautiful landscape fills with the sound of swans calling to one another, their large feet slapping the water as they take off and their wings beat as they pass over head.

Towards the end of the event the birds on the mere are given their breakfast and then you return to the Mereside café for your breakfast.
