RSPB Newport Wetlands


The starling murmurations at Newport Wetlands are a wonder of the natural world with thousands of birds roosting in the reed beds. But have you ever wondered what this number of birds look like when they wake up? Come along on an early morning stroll to the roost site and watch as the whole flock take to the air. A truly unmissable sight! After a guided walk to see what else is up and about at dawn we'll warm up back at the visitor centre with a breakfast roll and hot drink.

Booking essential.
