Due to heavy rainfall along the catchment of the River Great Ouse, the Ouse Washes are currently acting as a flood water storage area. Access is possible to the main hide and wing hides, all other footpaths and hides are closed due to flooding. Swan feeds and hare walk are still running as normal.

What's on

Hare walk

Date: Sat 2 November - Sat 29 February (Monday, Thursday and Saturday only)

Join one of our guides for a walk in search of hares.

Hares are adapted to open country, and you can't get much more open than the landscape of the Fens. But most people only catch a glimpse of a hare on the arable land, as they drive around this area. Our guides will take you for a walk onto an area of wetland not normally open to the public, but which is particularly good for hares. During the winter the added advantage of short vegetation makes these mammals easier to observe. With a bit of sunshine, the hares can often be tempted to go in search of females, which can lead to some early boxing!

Time: 2-3pm

Cost: FREE to members. Included in admission, you will need to purchase an admission ticket – 10% off with online admission.
