3rd November 2019 – WWT Slimbridge

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

After a day of heavy rain and strong winds yesterday, today it was dry and often sunny.  We visited the Wildlife and Wetland Trust centre at Slimbridge in Gloucestershire; we spent most of the time in the hides but enjoyed walking through the wetlands centre and seeing some of the more exotic wildfowl in the pens, especially as there was lots of sun to enjoy. My photographs are a mixture of captive and free birds.
