A new installation at WWT Welney Wetland Centre will allow visitors to fly with swans, hide in the reeds like a bittern or box with hares.

The film room has been made possible with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the support of the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme.

Using a studio set-up complete with a green screen, you can interact with scenarios using a selection of props.

Or you can step into the shoes of Steve Backshall or Michaela Strachan and present to camera about what you are seeing.

Media production officer Adam Finch said: “It’s a fantastic way for children to engage with wildlife through technology and learn about the world around them in a new and exciting way.”

During the summer holidays the wildlife film room will be available on Wednesdays and weekends.
