Welney Wetland Trust

Welney Wetland Trust is about 20 minutes from Littleport and can be a great day out any time of the year.

During the winter (late October to early March), they have feeds for the swans that migrate to the local area. Check the times to confirm but when I went you could go at midday and 3.30 pm everyday and 6.30 pm floodlight feeds Thursday to Saturdays.

It was good because they gave you the history of the site and trust, how people used it, and told you what birds you are looking at. Quite handy for a person like me who knows nothing.

They have so much more to offer than just these feeds.

  • They have daily walks around the washes to see the wildflowers and the work that they are doing. (June-September).
  • On weekends and holidays, (April to September) you take part in the British child's pastime activity of pond-dipping. 
  • All year round they have activity stations to help you learn about the wetlands which are available weekends and holidays.

Outside of these things, they have many walks that you can do, bird feeding station, Fenland worlds exhibition, Pond Room, Main observatory, Dragonfly ponds and the Lyle hide.

Great day out with the children in nature.

They also have a cafe to fill your stomach after being one with nature.

You can see some of my photos here.

All the Best!
