Wild Swan Feeds

Enjoy a commentated bird feed with a guide from the heated main hide at WWT Welney.  The excitement builds as the birds get ready to be fed, swans and ducks line-up waiting for the guide to appear. The live commentary begins and after an introduction to the reserve, the guide makes their way out to feed the birds. Watch a serene lagoon turn into a hive of activity as the birds feed! Enjoy close-up views of whooper and mute swans, the guide will point out any family groups or ringed individuals. The pochard are busy diving beneath the surface of the water for the grain and the mallard say ‘bottom’s up’ as they get in on the action. After the feed, there is time to ask the guide any questions.

Time: 12noon & 3.30pm daily, 6.30pm floodlit feeds weekends only. Cost: Free to members, included in admission – you will need to purchase an admission ticket, but do not need to book spaces at the actual feeds. Groups of 12 or more people, who book to visit a swan feed can get a reduced admission fee.

Top tip: We advise arriving at the centre 30 minutes prior to the swan feed you want to enjoy. Open everyday, except Christmas Eve & Christmas Day
