Nowhere epitomises chick and duckling season like Pensthorpe Natural Park, near Fakenham in Norfolk, where from Saturday 6 to Monday 22 April 2018 visitors can join its Easter Eggstravaganza!

Seasonal craft-making activities and an Easter-themed trail will send adventurers across the breadth of the 700-acre reserve.

Join the daily golden egg hunt to find the golden egg, which will be nestled in a different top-secret location each day. Find it to win a free day pass to the reserve!

Plus Pensthorpe promises some of the season's finest natural wonders such as ducklings waddling obediently behind their mothers, carpets of spring flowers in bloom and the start of spring bird migration. There are also daily red squirrel talks, 'hands-on' pond dipping tutorials and informative nest-box sessions designed to spark a 'lightbulb moment' of appreciation for the natural world in children and young families.

For the best way to see behind the scenes at the reserve visitors can book a place on the Pensthorpe Explorer*. Hop into the Land Rover and Trailer for an 'off road' exploration of the estate to discover areas of interest, learn about Pensthorpe's history and go wildlife spotting!

After learning what nature has to offer out on the reserve, head over to award-winning eco-play areas WildRootz and Hootz House, which are popular with families wanting to burn off some steam! Inspired by features of the natural world, these intrepid outdoor and indoor play zones challenge children with dens, tunnels, streams, towers, slides and zip wires!

Ever wondered what it's like to be a Pensthorpe Warden? Then join the Daily Bird Feeds! Enjoy this educational talk from the comfort of the viewing gallery and discover what birds live on or visit the expansive Mill Pond and lakes at Pensthorpe.

There's no better time to get acquainted with Pensthorpe than at Easter when some of the reserve's cutest and cuddliest new residents emerge, so come armed with wellies, a sense of adventure and be prepared for an Easter Eggstravaganza that provides fun for all the family!

Entry to the Easter Eggstravaganza is included in the admission price. For more information about Pensthorpe visit pensthorpe.com or call 01328 851465.
