The Wildfowl and Wetland Trust not only has the world’s largest collection of captive wildfowl, but a wonderful array of birds stopping by. In late April the estuary becomes alive with waders (on their way to the Arctic), as well as kingfishers, cuckoos, summer warblers and so many others. Rarer birds should include egrets (cattle and great white), herons (purple and night), spoonbills and glossy ibis. On arrival, we will have refreshments and then a guided tour to hear the history and to see the birds. That is followed by free time with much to do both inside and out. Lunch is not included, but there is a restaurant and places to have coffee.
