WITH a record count of Whooper swans, more than 10,000 pink-footed geese and its family of otters, WWT Martin Mere reckons Christmas and New Year is a great time to visit.

"And at this time of year Martin Mere's landscape is absolutely stunning," says centre manager, Andy Wooldridge.

The swan feeds take place every day at 10.30am, 10.45am, 3pm and 3.30pm (the 10.45am and 3.30pm feeds inside the heated observatory so you can watch thousands of birds feed from comfort and enjoy a warden's talk at the same time. The otter feeds are at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

Activities take place everyday until Sunday, January 6, closing only on Christmas day.
