Hand feeding of birds is back at Martin Mere Wetland Centre

by Henry James (August 2022)

WILDFOWL & Wetlands Trust Martin Mere Wetland Centre, the nature reserve in Burscough, has received the green light to allow visitors to hand feed birds again.

It comes after almost a year of hand feeding being taken off the list of activities at the centre, following Government guidelines and to protect the captive collection from the spread of avian flu.

Nick Brookes, general manager at WWT Martin Mere, said: “We know our visitors have missed being able to hand feed the birds and have been eagerly waiting to hear the news that it’s returning to the centre.

“We are pleased to announce that we can offer this experience again.”

People will be able to get closer to and feed flamingos, swans, geese, and many ducks such as the shelduck, white-faced whistling duck, indian runner duck, and tufted duck.
