Foolishly, we'd not thought of booking an electric buggy and didn't notice any as we clocked in. So Jane had to push me round all day. What a hand! Driving three hours there and back and wheeling me miles round the place in between. No wonder she was tired when we got home. I do appreciate her, honest!
Anyway, here's the day in pictures.
|View over the River Severn which Jane took|
as I couldn't climb the stairs in the hide
|Our not entirely disinterested|
lunch companion with enormous feet
|We rather liked this chap,|
?a foreign teal
|Chilean and Andean flamingos - endangered species|
|My favourite view - from the Kingfisher Hide,|
though the hard winter made them nest elsewhere, we learned
|Amazing - another endangered species,|
the harvest mouse is
tiny. Love its Latin name
|One of four otters we saw being fed.|
Because it's illegal to feed live food,
you can't see them hunting down
their prey as in the wild.
|The loveliest bird in Slimbridge on Tuesday. The twitchers missed her!|
