We headed for the cafe first to buy a bag of duck and swan feed, £1 for a big bag, as bread is bad for them. We then grabbed a hot chocolate as it was quite nippy out and sat and watched the cameras set up in the nest boxes around the area. It was quite interesting to watch some of the birds building their nests and I want to go back when they have laid their eggs.
We then headed outside and went for a stroll around some of the walkways and peek out of the hide. We were lucky to get quite close to a few birds on our little walk and Luca got very excited to see a robin so closely.
After that we headed out onto the feeding platform, after all that’s what we really came for.
There were tons of swans and ducks all waiting for some food and it was lovely to walk among the reeds and see all the wildlife.
It really is a beautiful place to visit and we have already decided we are going to go on one of the longer walks once the weather gets a bit nicer, hopefully we’ll end up in one of the local pubs for a cheeky drink and some food.
All in all we had a lovely day, just wish we could have gotten a bit closer to the swans and ducks to feed them. The hunt is still on for up close and personal duck feeding.
