WWT London, a non-twitchers view
Click WWT London events for 2011 to find out what is happening. I am not a hardcore, or even medium core, twitcher. I like big obvious birds, colourful birds, impressive birds and birds in huge numbers, occasionally. LBJs don’t do it for me. So I thought I would go and have a wander round.
First off is a kind of bird zoo, various rare and unusual waterfowl that are here for a reason, usually as part of a captive breeding programme as they are endangered in the wild.

One question though, and I am sure there is a good reason, but how much better would the café/restaurant be if you could sit out overlooking the lagoons and the business end of the reserve, even through some smoked glass, rather than out towards the bus stop?
