WWT London Wetland CentreA mosaic of created wetland habitats spread over 43 hectares, developed on the site of a disused Victorian reservoir, forms the site of the London Wetland Centre. Wander around and explore the wetlands, but also make sure you include The Peter Scott Visitor Centre in your trip. The Visitor Centre allows people to get closer to wildlife. There are TV monitors in the buildings broadcasting pictures beamed from the wilderness areas of the reserve, coupled with interactive computers allowing visitors to explore the secret world of birds and wetland wildlife. If you look carefully you may be lucky enough to spot some rare birds - sightings include a Spoonbill, more likely to be seen in Africa, while Bittern are one of the rare winter visitors. A hidden gem and not just for the twitchers.
