Back at the Washington Wetland Centre
We had our first trip of the year to the Washington Wetland Centre today. It was quite cold still but signs of spring are definitely emerging! We saw bulbs shooting up, nesting swans and baby flamingos in the nursery (not yet pink)! We watched the otters being fed and had a good play in the playground. Looking forward to our visits here this year, it is a great place to see nature through the seasons and to look at habitat and a variety of animals and life cycles. Of course it will be much more enjoyable when we can enjoy a picnic outdoors and an ice cream (although I am sure Harry and Peter would not turn down an ice cream in February!) but some chilly visits will do for now.
