Enjoy spectacular displays of feather and flight in Lancashire


From the rugged moorlands of Bowland to the dramatic sands of Morecambe Bay, Lancashire is renowned for its birds and wildlife.

From the hen harrier in its hillside home to the red throated diver on the shores of the Irish Sea, Lancashire is a mecca for bird lovers throughout the year. Whatever part of the county you are exploring, take your binoculars and prepare to be rewarded for your patience by a real wildlife show. This is a part of England rich in nature as well as heritage and be prepared to be dazzled.

There are also special reserves and visitor attractions where everyone is made welcome such as Lancashire Wildlife Trust Brockholes Wetland Nature Reserve, Longton Brickroft Nature Reserve and WWT Martin Mere Wetlands Centre who celebrate their 40th anniversary this year. And when you’ve been inspired by nature, relax in one of the many teashops and cafes, or visit farm shops and craft centres for local produce or that special gift.
