Take a guided walk around the reserve to start to learn about the birds that make their home in the wetlands of the UK.  You'll be met at the entrance to the centre and taken out onto the reserve to observe the birds from a few of our hides.  Guidance will be given on how to identify the birds seen (plenty of them have distinguishing features), where you need to look out for them and some interesting information about their behaviours.  Questions are very much welcomed on these walks and they are suitable for adults and children.
