Sometimes the weather or that annoying thing called real life can get in the way of our fishing or walking but even when busy it’s always great to get out and about, even if it’s for just a little while.
We’re very lucky in Lancashire to have near by the WWT reserve, Martin Mere which, like all the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust reserves is running events throughout June to help showcase the work they do and enable everyone to enjoy some of the UK’s fantastic wildlife.
The agenda for June is below but if you want more information you can visit Martin Mere’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ page here.
