Martin Mere trip

We had a wet but great day at Martin Mere!

Pauline talked to us about Whooper swans and the journey that they make from Iceland! We felt the weight of a swan, we looked at their waterproof, strong feathers, their special bones which looked bubbly inside and even a webbed foot. 


Pauline took us to a bird hide to see the swans and use binoculars to observe their behaviour and look more closely. We even saw cygnets.

We explored Martin Mere and couldn't believe how many different birds we spotted.                                      

We were even brave enough to get up close and personal and feed the birds!

We took a step back in time and entered the hunter's cabin. We saw clues from the past about where the hunter might have lived and what animals lived there. There were also clues about the weather!  

We really enjoyed seeing the Asian otters getting fed! That made us hungry too!  

Before we went home, we visited the Native American Indian village (duck hunters) and took one last look at the beautiful Flamingos.
