London Wetlands

I have been going to London once or twice a year since 1999. And in all those visits I had no idea there was a nature preserve right there in the city! The WWT London Wetland Centre is located on the Queen’s Walk. In addition to all the great parks London has to offer, the wetlands were another peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here are a few of the shots I got there:

I’ll have more to share if I ever find the time to process them all!

  1. Its a great place. There are other places easy to reach they are wetlands or similar. A small one in central London is Lavender Pond, and a couple of larger ones a little further out worth a visit are Welsh Harp and Rainham Marshes (if you like these sorts of places I have written about them on my blog – use the ‘birding’ category tag or just search for them)
