A vintage van body is using as the bird watching HIDE at Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust. Slimbridge, Gloucestershire



Well worth for a family day out at Slimbridge Wetland Centre. in the Stroud area of Gloucestershire is not only home to the world’s largest availability in the natural habitat with swans, geese, ducks and Kingfishers, but it is also the only place in the UK where the visitor can see all six species of flamingo. It holds the international significance as the headquarters of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT), with 325 hectares of protected wetlands which also play home to wildlife including water voles, waders, hares and dragonflies.


Enjoyed the early morning tranquil wetlands and the stunning Severn Estuary at Slimbridge......we were the first visitors of that day, that half an hour trail walk through last night’s dew merged grassy path while passing the trenches and bunkers built for Second World War and the gracing flocks of cattle reached the estuary. Low tide time, was giving the long view of the estuary with flying clusters of wading water birds like curlews and red shanks through the fogy air was a fascinating nature, The Slimbridge.
