About the event

Back in March Surrey Wildlife Trust unveiled a giant 20 metre wide sandcastle for sand martins to welcome them back from Africa to nest.

The huge 400 tonne sand installation was built to provide hundreds of new homes at the reserve for the first time in 25 years. 

Join Project Manager James Herd to learn about the project and hopefully get a glimpse of how these wonderful spring migrants have reacted to their new sand palace!
