Run by the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, the London Wetland Centre is one of the most extensive havens for birds and wildlife in Europe. With wide-ranging lakes, ponds and marshes that cover an area of 43 hectors it also has 3.4 kilometers of pathways. Every year thousands of wild birds flock to the Wetland Centre and visitors can watch them for the specially built hides around the reserve that can accommodate wheelchairs as well or from CCVT links that can be viewed from the Visitor Centre.

You can see many different birds including the very rear White-spotted Bluethroat and Curlew, Greenshank, Green Sandpiper, Knot and Whimbrel. There are regular birds that visit including on one day 500 Swifts and about 14 Yellow Warblers that were recorded. Five birds of prey species have been seen including some rear sightings of an Osprey, other regulars include Peregrine, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and Hobby. The London Wetland Center also has many other species that you can enjoy including three species of bat Pipistrelle, Noctule and Daubenton's, marsh frogs, foxes, butterflies, highland cattle, water voles and ducks.

The Wetland Centre is open all year around and is worth a visit in both summer and winter as the species that can be seen vary a great deal. Last admission is 4pm in the winter and 5pm in the summer.
