Martin Mere Wetland Centre is located roughly halfway between Ormskirk, Lancashire and Southport, Merseyside. As you travel North along the A59 (from Liverpool/Bootle) when you reach Burscough Bridge (train station) turn right (it is signposted) and head for Tarlscough. From Preston take the A59 and head for Liverpool, turn left before you reach Burscough Train Station.

Martin Mere, set in over 500 acres, is home to over 100 species of rare and endangered geese, ducks, swans, flamingos and yes even beavers.

It really is a superb day out all-year-round for all the family, young and not so young.

The range of birds and wildfowl at Martin Mere is exceptional:- East African Crested Cranes, Mandarin Ducks, Whooper Swans, Mute Swans, Bewick Swans, Coscoroba Swans, Flamingos, Black Winged Stilts, Avocets, Hawaiian Geese, Canada Geese, Marsh Harriers, Down Ducklings, Crested Screamers, Smews, Mallards, Northern Pintails, Greylag Geese, Grey Herons, Shelducks, Wigeons, Teals, Shovelers, Goldeneyes, Common Buzzards, Kestrels, Moorhens, Coots, Lapwings, Common Snipes, Redshanks, Great Spotted Woodpeckers and Kingfishers to name but a few.

There are a number of hides on the site, some small (to accommodate around 4-6 people) to huge long hides that can easily acommodate over 50.

Parking is available at the entrance and Martin mere has a gift shop, cafe, toilets and a gallery. Entrance for adult is £8.75, annual membership is also available.
