Free Hot Drink at Burton Mere Wetlands

To say #ThanksToYou we're inviting you to enjoy a free hot drink in our new café at Burton Mere Wetlands between Saturday 9 and Sunday 17 March! Simply show a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard when ordering.

Located at the gateway to the Dee Estuary reserve, Burton Mere Wetlands straddles the border between England and Wales with a mosaic of freshwater wetland habitats, mixed farmland and woodland. This means that the area is bursting with wildlife and of course a wide range of birdlife such as avocets, egrets, harriers, redshanks, swallows and swifts.

On arrival you'll be greeted by ancient woodland with ample oaks and in spring the most stunning bluebell carpet. There really is something for everyone; relax whilst watching waders, ducks and birds of prey from the comfort of the visitor centre with a drink and a snack, follow the self-guided family quiz trail on pushchair friendly paths or build a den in our Wild Play area for extra adventure. There are even the remains of an Iron Age hillfort at Burton Point, from where you can enjoy unrivalled views across the estuary and see the extent of the saltmarsh, which is also under our protection, making this one of the RSPB’s largest reserves in the country.

So why not grab your National Lottery Ticket and join us for some outdoor fun and discover this incredible reserve for yourself. Entry Frees still apply for non - members and if you're already a member it's a great time to bring a friend or two along.

Huge #ThanksToYou and everyone at the National Lottery for helping us connect local communities with nature at RSPB Nature Reserves.
