Wetlands in London



Wetlands in London

One of Bill Oddie's 'seven natural wonders of the world'.

Location: Queen Elizabeth's Walk, Barnes, SW13 9WT

Description: The 43 hectare London Wetland Centre is the best urban site in Europe to watch wildlife, an international award winning visitor attraction and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

Located on the banks of the River Thames in Barnes, Southwest London the centre is home to rare and beautiful wildlife including Bitterns, Kingfishers and a colony of endangered Water voles.

And another arrow in its 'bow of nature' is the fact that it was declared to be one of the 'seven natural wonders of the world' by non other than Bill Oddie, the legendary 'Goodie' comedian and all round Ornithologist.

This is a day out in London not to be missed, when it doesn't actually feel like London - so go get on the 'Goodie' vibe. Check out the webbie... http://www.wwt.org.uk/centre/119/visit/wetlandcentre/.html
