Wild Winter - Wonderful Wildfowl Weekend

Slimbridge, Gloucestershire

Sat 13 January - Sun 14 January 2018

Each weekend in January we're inviting you to join us in celebrating the wonder of winter birds, with a series of special events as part of Wild Winter.

In our third Wild Winter weekend, we're showing appreciation for our wonderful wildfowl, celebrating everything duck and goose. Join our wardens on a Bird Watch Morning wildfowl special and enjoy our wildfowl talks with experts. Families can follow the duck spotter trail and become wildfowl researchers too!
