London Wild Bird Watch aims to create a unique blend of ‘Shop, Learn and Do’ for everyone who has an existing or growing interest in bird and wildlife watching. Celebrity speakers including Kate Humble and Ellie Harrison will be on hand to answer all your questions on the amazing array of wildlife that is on display throughout the Capital. You can also join our experts on a series of ‘How To…’ walks covering everything from photography to bird watching. The Nature On Your Doorstep theatre, hosted by Simon King, will be a feast of live, up-close, wildlife highlights from around the nature reserve. And the shopping village is a one-stop-shop for all things natural, from holidays to optics and outdoor gear to natural history books.
Visitors to London Wild Bird Watch will be able to roam the scenic walkways among the lakes, ponds, meadows and gardens at London Wetland Centre to see the birds and other wildlife – such as water voles, dragonflies, snakes and lizards - that inhabit the 105 acre reserve. Over 180 bird species are seen annually and visitors will be able to watch them close up on the newly installed cameras in key locations.
Whatever your level of interest, from feeding the birds in your garden to an avid wildlife watcher, London Wild Bird Watch has something for you.
WWT London Wetland Centre is delighted to be hosting the first London Wild Bird Watch.
