VIDEO: Duck hunt at Martin Mere is sure to be fun for the holidays

20th March 2015

A group of GIANT ducks will be landing at WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre this Easter, and we need your children to help us find them all! 

The GIANT rubber duck hunt will take place at WWT Martin Mere this Easter from the 28th March to the 19th April, promising prizes and lots of family fun for the holidays.

On arrival you’ll be given an activity sheet to take a trail round the grounds, where you’ll need to search high and low – and use all your hide-and-seek skills to find these rubbery yellow visitors. There are prizes and yummy treats to be won, as well as a certificate for taking part.


Victoria Fellowes, Marketing Manager at Martin Mere said:

“Our wardens are great at spotting all the baby ducklings, goslings and cygnets waddling around our wetland nature reserves right now. But for some reason they keep missing these cheeky GIANT yellow rubber ducks – so we desperately need your help to find them!”

Martin Mere will also place host to a selection of daily family activities during the Easter holidays to keep visitors of all ages entertained, including walks and talks and paint a duck craft sessions to enter our duck race on the 19th April. There will also be den building and pond dipping on offer as well as our award winning canoe and boat safaris reopening from the 28th March.
