Birdwatching just got really, really wild at the WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre.
Birdwatching is different here. Hidden behind a fox-proof fence (it’s the foxes that need to be protected from the birds!) is 325 hectares of grasslands, wetlands and the banks of the Severn estuary, all of it teeming with birds. This incredible nature reserve is home to more than 200 different species of birds, a diverse range of flora and fauna and more than 35,000 wildfowl during winter.
Get a legs-eye view of the flock of pink flamingos from the sunken observatory. Then grab a paddle and explore the waterways yourself by canoe. Kids can splash around in the wet-play Welly Boot Land, or meet the colourful amphibians in Toad Hall.
So if you know a Bewick’s swan from a starling, or you’d like to, fly down to Gloucestershire to have a flapping good time.
VisitEngland would like to invite you to take part in a short survey about our website.
It should take no more than a couple of minutes.
