Kids bio-blitz at RSPB Ham Wall!

There’s a secret world hidden all around us, full of amazing creatures...

Join us to find and identify what is lurking in the pond, hiding in the grass or under a stone, or singing from the trees! We will spend some time pond dipping, bug hunting and bird watching, finding as many animals as we can and recording them as we go along, helping us to create a snapshot of what animals are around at that time in the Mini Marshes and the main path of the reserve.

This event is aimed at families with children aged between 5-12 years. Children must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult (18 +) at all times. Accompanying adults free. Younger children and teens are permitted and are free but will not be able to participate in the activities.

Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are:

£7 for child RSPB members.

£8.50 for child RSPB non-members.

Please note that booking fees apply. Booking fee included in cost above.

The pond dipping platform is hardstanding, with a gravel path to reach it. The main path around the Mini Marshes and along to the viewing platform is also gravel. For more information on accessibility at Ham Wall please see

Car Parking is available in the large RSPB car park but please note that car parking charges apply to non-RSPB members (£3 all day). RSPB members display membership card on dashboard for free parking.
