Supporting Wildfowl and Wetlands Centres

We visited Llanelli Wildfowl and Wetland Centre while holidaying in Wales this summer.  E loved feeding the birds and reading the information about them so much we decided to become members. Afterall we’re lucky enough to live 25 minutes drive from Slimbridge which was the first centre for conservation set up by Peter Scott, son of the Antarctic explorer Captain Scott, in 1946 (you can read more about that here)

Euan’s first visit to Slimbridge was on a  warm autumn weekend.  We spent the whole day immersed in feeding birds, searching for giant Lego animals, talking to Otters and playing in Welly Boot Land in the late afternoon sun.


For the rest of the week at school pick up E asked “can we go to the bird park again“. When we visited after school that Friday it was virtually deserted which made the job of finding the lego animals we’d missed first time round a lot easier.

Slimbridge is already a great day out but if they can fundraise £1.6 million they can release a Heritage Lottery Fund award of £4.4 million to further develop the site. We shall watch with excitement to see what that means for our little explorers…
