Majorca Avocet Stilt 002

Burton Mere Wetlands

Event info

The gateway to the Dee Estuary reserve, Burton Mere Wetlands straddles the border between England and Wales with a mosaic of freshwater wetland habitats, mixed farmland and woodland. The area is bursting with wildlife, hosting avocets, egrets, harriers, redshanks, swallows and swifts. Former arable fields were transformed into a rich wet grassland with shallow scrapes and lagoons to create a home for a variety of wading birds and wildfowl. A modest reedbed supports an abundance of warblers in spring and provides good feeding areas for herons, egrets etc.
