Swan Spectacular

From November until March, Martin Mere welcomes up to 2,000 whooper swans that migrate from Iceland to spend the winter in West Lancashire - a spectacle that is unique to the North West.

The Swan Spectacular is centred on the daily feeds of the swans. They are creatures of habit and will instinctively fly in as they come up to feed everyday at 3pm at the new Discovery hide and 3.30pm in the Raines Observatory. Both feeds include a wardens talk.  The noise is deafening and the sight is amazing as swans, shelduck, wigeon and pintail all gather for their food.  It is literally a carpet or wildlife across the front mere.
