Winter walks at Old Moor reserve in Manvers

NATURE lovers are being invited to enjoy the great outdoors with some special festive activities.

This Sunday, December 22, and next, December 29, RSPB Old Moor at Manvers is hosting storytelling sessions of a family Christmas story, Robin’s Winter Song, followed by a short walk on the nature reserve to feed to robins that call the nature reserve home.

These bold little birds have become a symbol of the season, and visitors can discover a little more about them and marvel at just how close they come to people. 

The robin story and walk are £5 per adult and £3 per child. 

There’s also a guided walk on Boxing Day from 1pm to 4pm and another on New Year’s Day from 8am to 11am.

Danielle Jackson, visitor experience manager at Old Moor, said: “This is a fantastic time of year on the reserve. 

“It’s the chance to spot and celebrate the amazing wildlife that comes to the UK in the winter, from the swans, ducks and geese, to the winter thrushes and, of course, robin red breast. 

“Christmas has a way of bringing everyone together, and at Old Moor we have something for everyone. 

“Come along down with your friends and family and enjoy the feel-good factor of Christmas.”

Booking is essential and done in advance via search for “old moor” or phone 01226 751593.
