A Day at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
During the school holidays there's lots going on at Llanelli Wetlands Centre, Llwynhendy, Llanelli SA14 9SH.
As part of the Great Weekend of Adventure 2016, we are calling on all those who love the outdoors to help us find our GIANT rubber ducks! Spring is a wonderful time to visit WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre with new life being seen everywhere. But we seem to have lost some of our ducks (the GIANT yellow rubber ones!) and we need your help to find them! Join us this Easter break to take part in our GIANT duck hunt across our beautiful grounds to find out where they are hiding. There will be prizes available for everyone who can locate our missing ducks! There are plenty of other exciting activities to take part in too, including:
- All day - Den building
Make your very own den entirely out of willow from the wetlands. This is a self-guided activity but there will be dens already made to give you some ideas. We'd love to see your own creations!
- 11am-12pm - Minibeast hunt mini pond dipping
Go bug hunting in our minibeast area, complete with plant pots, old rotting logs and other dark and damp places creepy crawlies love to call home! Join us at the pond zone to use nets to catch the wide variety of creatures swimming around in our ponds, including fish, newts and great diving beetles!
- 1pm Flamingo talk
Meet us at the flamingo house to find out more about these beautiful birds.
- 1pm - 2pm Flamingo watch with telescope
Our talk at 1pm will be followed by a drop-in flamingo watch until 2pm - join our guide to enjoy a close-up look at our flock of Caribbean flamingos using our binoculars and telescope.
