There is so much to see and hear at Minsmere: splendid heathland, woodland, wetland and coastal scenery, rare birds breeding and clling in on their migrations, shy wildlife like otters, the booming call of bitterns in spring, beautiful bugs and colourful wild flowers in summer.  Bring the family and discover nature together in the Wild Zone and Wild Wood Adventure.
