Visit our Swans, Ducks and Geese. There are a wide variety of waterfowl and birds around the ponds.

There are all seven species of Swan from around the world; the oldest geese known to man; the rarest; the highest flying, the most endangered, to the smallest and some indigenous visitors.

All non- indigenous species are pinioned so as to prevent them from leaving the area and interfering with the biodiversity of our natural wildfowl.

Indigenous species such as the Whooper Swans, Graylag Geese, Mallard Ducks and Grey Herons are free to come and go!

If you are lucky you may spot Kingfishers, or hear the Willow Bunting
