2nd July 2016 – Slimbridge

WWT Slimbridge – Slimbridge Wetlands Centre

I used to be very bored when I went to Slimbridge as a kid. How views can change! I still have some reservation about the birds in captivity but do recognise how important all of this is.

Highlights were the Avocets, Ruff and Redshank in their own pen (safe from the Black-headed Gulls – I’m sure they have enough else to feed on), the otters and a glimpse of a Buzzard from the Kingfisher hide.
