    Map

    The National Wetland Centre near Llanelli in Wales is a 450 acre mosaic of lakes, scrapes, pools, streams and lagoons adjoining the salt marshes and shore of the scenic Burry Inlet.

    The range of habitats makes the site a refuge for many different plants and animals - from year-round members of the centre's world wildfowl collection to seasonal flocks of wild birds numbering up to 50,000 strong.

     

    Highlights: Spectacular water birds, waders, shorebirds and dragonflies. It is a great place to see a wide range of waterbirds including pintail, shoveler, oystercatcher, shelduck, teal, black and bar-tailed godwits, curlew and snipe, as well as an increasing population of little egrets. Breeding birds on site include redshank, lapwing, reed warbler and reed bunting. Water voles thrive and otters are occasionally seen.
