London Wetlands Centre

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.

    Great day out with a good bunch of people. Pun of the day goes to Barry: On being told again, tongue-in-cheek, that we had spotted that elusive Bittern he quipped "I don't believe you, once Bittern, twice shy!" - groans all round. Definitely worth another visit in the Spring.

    Great day out...saw just about everything that's been sighted at the London WWT recently, apart from the elusive bittern...and the sun shined. A very good reason to return at some point soon. Thanks for organising.

    Some info for those that haven't been before. The walk from Hammersmith tube takes about 40mins; the bus takes 10mins. Once people have paid (or shown membership cards) it's better to gather near the Pagoda in the central courtyard to avoid clogging up the reception area for the general public. The centre won't accept 20 people on the 2pm tour, but there is an 11am tour as well, so those that arrive just before 11am are advised to join that. Remember to bring binoculars and cameras with you ...
