The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) declares Slimbridge Wetland Centre in Gloucestershire to be the birthplace of modern conservation. That may well be true. All I can say is that Slimbridge seems to be brilliant for birding. I’ve never been myself (yet) but Charlie has mentioned Slimbridge more than once. Now, one of our readers has turned to us for some help identifying some peculiar waterfowl he photographed there. When I say us, I mean YOU of course. I’ve placed two of the three. Can you make a clean sweep? Feel free to lean heavily on widely-respected waterfowl resources!
