Alternative Air Show

Alternative Air Show

Experience the amazing sights and sounds of huge flocks of birds, twisting and turning in the sky like aerial display teams and the dramatic show of predators doing what they do best, at our Alternative Air Show at RSPB Marshside.

Join this guided walk to enjoy an amazing wildlife spectacle in nature's home, as wading birds and other wildlife move across the marsh looking for roosting sites as the water rises. As the marsh floods, don't forget to keep a look out for small mammals trying to escape the water and hungry raptors above.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear (walking boots or wellingtons recommended) as this is an exposed site and the walk will be on the old haul road across the saltmarsh, which can be very muddy.

Unfortunately, these walks are not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. No dogs please.

Price: £4.00 RSPB members / £5.00 non-RSPB members

Venue: RSPB Marshside nature reserve. Meet in the RSPB car park on Marine Drive, Southport.
