Why Not Birdwatching?
RSPB Discovery Centre, an interesting visitor attraction with interactive displays and volunteers who will explain all about the wildlife on the Ribble Estuary, one of the best areas in the world for different species of birds.

The Ribble Estuary is one of the most important places for wildlife in Europe. There are many wildlife habitats, large flocks of birds, wildflowers on the marshes, mud burrowing worms, fish and other sea creatures. The estuary conjures up different scenes to different people. Some may think of the vast sun-baked sands, or windswept dunes. Others may picture cattle grazing on the marshes or flocks of wading birds scurrying along the strandline as the waves ebb and flow.
