If, like me, you've overdosed on turkey this Christmas and been a bit too merry on new years eve then you'll be dying to get back outdoors and explore some of the south's wild places to see what animals you can find! As a gentle start were going to spend a day at the amazing London Wetlands Centre in Barnes. Always a lovely place to go and January is a great time to spot wildlife that's normally hidden by vegetation. On the list for this trip are the elusive bittern and water vole. Entry is around £10 each for the day and we'll meet at the centre at 11am. Unlike last year, I have decided to charge a £3 fee per person for each meet up as meetup.com are upping their charges to organisers for running a group and £3 each will just about cover the costs.
