WWT Welney

The friendly welcome our visitors receive is the perfect start to a day exploring wetlands, where incredible wildlife encounters take place every day, set in the heart of the Fens. The service and facilities we provide in our visitor centre and throughout the reserve reflect a top-quality experience, both for those new to watching wildlife and those who connect with nature on a regular basis.
In winter, enjoy a spectacle of swans, ducks and wading birds as flocks of thousands gather up throughout the coldest months. From the comfort of our heated hide watch commentated swan feeds and find out more about the reserve and its wildlife from our guides. In spring, see some of the UK’s rarest wetland birds as they navigate through breeding season, displaying, building nests and raising young. Explore the waterways with pond dipping, search the footpaths and vegetation whilst bug hunting and find out more about wetland wildlife with school holiday family activities.
In summer, enjoy the wealth of insect life that wetlands are home to as well as a variety of wildflowers coming into bloom. Find out how our team keep out wetlands healthy with our exhibit and trails.
