Feed a bird from your hand

Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

The sparrows on the terrace of the Sticklebarn Pub in Great Langdale know a good meal when they find one. Sit still for long enough and they’ll eat the crumbs from your plate. Whilst you are there you might even want to explore the waterfall nearby such as Dungeon Ghyll Force - also home to some beautiful birds and wildlife.

If you like wildlife and birds, you might like to try spotting tawny owls living at Cock Shot Wood and Friar's Crag!
