Discover the wonderful wildlife of RSPB Campfield Marsh

Monday 15 May 2017

A special discovery day is set to be held at RSPB Campfield Marsh this bank holiday and staff and volunteers at the nature reserve near Bowness on Solway are inviting families to join in the fun.

Taking place on Sunday 28 May, the event will include an exciting range of activities, running throughout the day, including bird box building, pond dipping and bug hunting.

Following these adventures, participants can refresh with a hot drink and selection of cakes as well as picking up a bargain on the book stall, perusing the items on the RSPB sale stand and learning more about volunteering opportunities.

Dave Blackledge, RSPB Site Manager at Campfield Marsh said: "Our popular discovery day is an ideal opportunity for families to explore Campfield Marsh. We held our last one in November when there was a great variety of winter wildlife around. However, in spring, the site transforms and the change of season means there is a whole host of new nature to discover. Our enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff and volunteers will be on hand around the reserve to help you learn more about this special place and why it is so important for the wildlife that calls it home."

The discovery day will run from 10.30 am-4 pm and entry is free.
