All day (self-guided) LEGO brick animal trail - The popular giant LEGO brick-animal trail is back by popular demand this year with some new models not featured in last year’s trail. Complete the trail and be entered into our prize draw!

11am – 12pm Minibeast hunt and Mini pond dipping - Drop in anytime between 11am-12pm to explore our minibeast area, searching for creepy crawlies, plus discover which weird and wonderful creatures live in our ponds by catching them with nets and examining them in the water trays.

12pm – 1pm & 2pm - 3pm Book an awesome LEGO brick workshop - Perfect for LEGO fans young and old, our hour long workshop will include exciting challenges and a chance to make your own spooky frog model to take home (perfect for Halloween). Booking essential. Advised 4+.

1pm – 2pm Guide in the herons wing hide - Our beautiful herons wing hide looks out over the vast wetland landscape of the reserve. A great place to see many species’, from pintail to birds of prey. Our guide will be on hand with the telescope to help you get a better look.

3pm Pond dipping - This is an hour long session which consists of two parts. For the first half, participants catch an abundance of creatures from our pond zone. We then move in to our discovery room where our guide will show you a selection of what was caught under our giant microscope. We also like to share with you all the weird and wonderful facts about our pond life. We do have limited capacity for this activity therefore booking is essential. There is no extra charge but please sign up for this activity on arrival at the information desk.

Halloween-themed craft workshops (times vary) - Make your very own spooky souvenir to take home with you. We offer a variety of creepy craft activities where you can get creative! Please see our craft board at the Craft Corner for further details. Small charge to cover the cost of materials.

For those visiting on Wednesday 1 November, drop in to our bat box making workshops to learn a fun new skill and provide a home for wildlife.
