See tiny little ducklings hatch close up at WWT Martin Mere's Downy Duckling Week during May half term.
Watch the whole egg-to-duckling process, watch chipping eggs in anticipation and meet newly hatched ducklings (11am and 4pm).
Children can also take part in a fascinating 'candling' workshop, where a light is used to look inside an egg.
Workshops will also be running every half hour in the Lecture Theatre between 11am and 4pm but you must book your slot at the Visitor Services desk on arrival as tickets are limited so get them when you arrive before they run out.
You can also visit the duckling nursery between 11.30am and 3.30pm to meet the fluffy ducklings and goslings.
While you're at Martin Mere you can also watch our otter and white stork feeds, learn about flamingos, take to the water on a canoe safari, build a den and enjoy our adventure play area. There will also be 14 giant LEGO brick animals to explore the grounds for.
