Dawn Flight

Experience the spectacular sight of thousands of wild barnacle geese flighting into the reserve at dawn.

These beautiful birds have spent the night out on the Solway mudflats and fly in to feed on the fields during the day. Join the wardens out on the merse, as we open early to watch the geese flighting in against the dawn sky. The centre will open early to provide hot drinks.

Bring warm, waterproof clothing, walking boots or wellies, binoculars and a torch.
