New Year Walk
Hit the ground walking on New Year’s Day with RSPB staff and volunteers on a free guided walk around this wetland wonderland. At this time of year the reserve is teeming with wildlife, including wading birds and wildfowl.
You may be even luck enough to see a Peregrine or a Short Eared Owl hunting across the great carpet of saltmarsh.
Alex Pigott, RSPB warden at Marshside said: “This is a perfect start to the new year, whether you need to walk off that extra Christmas pudding, clear your head, or just enjoy the great outdoors and the amazing wildlife and views at Marshside”.
The free walk starts at 11am at the visitor centre (Sandgrounders’ Hide) on Tuesday 1 January.
Booking is essential – please call the Ribble Discovery Centre on 01253 796292 to book your place.
