Flamingos braving the cold at Slimbridge!
We couldn’t resist a winter visit and weren’t disappointed. I love to see the Swans and Geese flying, landing and taking off -always at the point when I had my camera switched off, of course. I had to make do with the fairly sedentary flamingos.
There’s always a book in the visitors centre for people to write down the birds they’ve spotted – we were slightly dubious about the owl spotted in the car park and resisted the temptation to put down the very rare Pigwidgeon seen nesting on top of the toilet block!
