The Solway is a vital destination for thousands of wintering geese from across the Arctic. This weekend in its second year celebrates the return of the wild geese to the Solway and informs about their amazing migration. The weekend includes opportunities to  watch thousands of geese flighting in from the mudflats at dawn, and their return at dusk. There will be guided walks on the reserve and fascinating talks from WWT experts about the latest research on geese. For families there is storytelling with professional storytellers (Tony Bonning and Anne Errington, 10.30 am in Storytelling Yurt each day) and craft activities and games. There is also the unique opportunity to see our fantastic wild swan feeds and many other wildfowl and birds of prey on the reserve.
