Families are invited to explore a Twelve Birds of Christmas treasure trail at RSPB Frampton Marsh this festive period.

Visitors can collect an entry sheet from the heated visitor centre from Friday, before venturing out onto the reserve’s surfaced paths to find clues.

Once all the clues have been found and the puzzle solved, they will be able to return to the visitor centre to claim their prize.

Entry is £2 per child, with the trail running between 10am and 3pm during the school holidays.

Chris Andrews, visitor services officer for the reserve, said: “Get out into the fresh air this Christmas.

“A gentle walk, something to excite the kids and a prize at the end. What could be better?”

On Sunday, December 28, visitors will be able to have a special look at the RSPB’s work at the site through a guided walk.

They will join a local volunteer to discover more about the site and its winter wildlife.

The walk starts at 1.30pm, and costs £4 per adult (£2 for children).

You can get more information on this or any other reserve activities by calling 01205 724678 or by emailing lincolnshirewashreserves@rspb.org.uk.

RSPB Frampton Marsh is signposted off the A16, five miles south-east of Boston.

Entry to the reserve is free and the heated visitor centre is open 10am to 4pm.
