Wirral Wader Festival

Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September


Price: Free entry to reserve, charges apply for some family activities and refreshments.

In celebration of the RSPB Dee Estuary reserve's 40th anniversary, we're delighted to host the 2019 Wirral Wader Festival at Burton Mere Wetlands. As well as a celebration of the internationally important wading bird flocks that make their home on the peninsula's coastline in autumn and winter, it offers a chance to admire and learn more about the populations of breeding wading birds like avocets and lapwings that the reserve is so important for. Stalls and activities from the event's partner organisations Cheshire Wildlife Trust, Wader Quest and Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens amongst others will be present, and we're offering free entry to everybody to enjoy this special occasion. Much of the event will take place in a marquee from local suppliers Muddy Boots, but hopefully the weather will allow plenty of time outdoors exploring the reserve.

Please note: this event is not organised by the RSPB
