Don't miss this fantastic winter spectacle - From the comfort of the heated Peng observatory hear our warden’s commentary as he feeds the thousands of wintering wild birds and hundreds of Bewick’s swans that have flown all the way from arctic Russia to be here.

Cost: Included in normal admission and free to members.

Please note that this event is not run on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

This year we are making some safety changes to the commentated bird feeds during the winter to allow them to go ahead. We ask you kindly to follow these rules;

  • Numbers are strictly limited and will be dictated by the size of groups attending
  • Masks will need to be worn unless you are exempt
  • Guides in the Hides will be monitoring numbers, please follow their instructions
  • It will be on a first come, first served basis
  • Social distancing will need to be maintained throughout the commentated feed
  • The Peng will have a one way system
  • Unfortunately there is no additional standing capacity
  • This is included in your admission ticket and membership
  • There is no pre-booking available for the feeds.
