11th November 2018 – Slimbridge

On our way to WWT Slimbridge we had the privilege to share an act of remembrance with the local community of Slimbridge on the centenary of the Armistice at their local parish church where there was an incredible installation “Wire Soldiers” by the local artist Jackie Lantelli. The wire soldiers stand at the foot of each grave where a soldier, sailor or airman of either WWI or WWII is either buried or commemorated. See my photo album – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/…

At WWT Slimbridge we didn’t linger long but had plenty of opportunity to see at close quarters pintail, wigeon, teal, tufted duck, shoveler, lapwing, Brent, Canada and greylag geese, Bewick swans and a little further away cranes, mute swans and large flocks of golden plover.
