WWT Welney Swan Feed (by Sacha Dench)


This August summer holiday, the world's most popular toy will bring families closer to nature at Welney Wetland Centre.

The GIANT LEGO brick animal trail will be here from Saturday 5 August - Sunday 3 September with the sculptures sitting amongst some of their real life cousins!

The awesome models will form a trail for kids (and big kids) to inspire them to build a better future for nature. Visitors will be able to enjoy the trail including a variety of individually-designed 1.5m LEGO brick animals, some inspired by real species at Welney Wetland Centre. Included are a Bewick's swan (the UK's smallest and rarest swan), a dragonfly and a kingfisher.
