Do something a little different this Easter Sunday and take part in a giant plastic duck hunt at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre.

For one day only, on Sunday 31 March, there will be 120 plastic ducks hidden around the grounds of Martin Mere and each duck has a prize associated with it. The ducks may be hidden under benches, in trees, on fences or in the building ensuring that you can spend a fun day exploring.

The prizes range from chocolate goodies to soft toys, free go on the canoes, ice-creams and a free lunch for the whole family in Mere Side Café.

The plastic duck hunt begins at 10.30am on Easter Sunday. For further information about the duck hunt and the range of other Easter activities happening, please visit

WWT Martin Mere is open every day from 9.30am to 5pm and parking is free of charge. Situated off the A59, it is signposted from the M61, M58 and M6.  The Centre is also accessible via the Southport to Manchester and the Liverpool to Preston line by train from Burscough Rail Stations.  Visit the web site to find out what’s on all year round at Martin Mere and the other eight centres.
