I was lucky enough to spend the day at the WWT Slimbridge, Wetland Centre this week, we have included many photos of our visit. WWT Slimbridge is a wetland nature reserve run by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust near the village of Slimbridge in Gloucestershire, it is based in a beautiful rural location in between The River Severn Estuary and the Gloucester-Sharpness canal.
The reserve is home to many Swans, Ducks, Geese, Otters, flamingos and many other species some of which are included in the gallery below.
