Family Spring Treasure Trail!

Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th April 2021

Come to Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory this weekend and take part in our FREE Spring Treasure Trail around our reserve! Search for signs of spring, collect letters along the way, unscramble the magic word.

You can pick up a map from us at the SBBOT carpark (apologies we were not able to upload here to our website). Use the map to follow the trail and find all 10 spring objects. Beside each object will be a letter, fill in the letters on your tick-sheet and unscramble the 10-letter word. Turn the letters you find over for a fun fact about the object and also a clue to help you find the next object! Find us back in the car park to collect your prize.

Volunteers will be set up at the carpark from 9.30am to 2pm on Saturday and Sunday (17th and 18th April).


The trail is an approximately 4km circular trail beginning and ending in our carpark. The trail is mostly uneven paths. Unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible. There are 2 styles on the trail.

We are situated on a toll road, which will cost £1 to come and park in the Observatory. Let the toll guards know you are visiting the Observatory.

Any queries get in touch with Becky, our Assistant Warden at
