Heron

The Mere at Ellesmere is the largest of the Shropshire Meres and attracts many different water birds, including winter migrants such as goldeneye and goosander, as well as having its own resident heron colony on Moscow Island.

From February until the end of May, come and watch the herons nesting and raising their young. Television screens at The Boathouse Visitor Centre have all the live action. Heronwatch volunteers and the Wildlife Trust staff will be happy to answer any questions and tell you about the herons.

Saturday 14 February is our “Welcome the Herons” launch of the 2015 season from 11am to 3pm.
