Red Deer 'Date with Nature'
Every Wednesday to Sunday, 12.30 - 5 pm until 2nd of September.
I thought I'd mention this again in case you haven't been yet. Our friendly staff and volunteers will be on hand to point out our red deer to you through the telescope and help you to discover lots of quirky things about them. See the calves bounding like spring lambs, there's 4 of them up to now, and look out for the stags with their huge antlers. Normal admission prices to the reserve apply. It's £10 per family, £5 per adult or if you are a member of the RSPB then it's free.
