Events in and around the Ouse Washes

Heritage Lottery FundThere are several events in and around the Ouse Washes area which are worth going to:

Interested in wildlife? Come and see the spectacular swan feeding sessions at Welney Wetland Centre. These are scheduled most days at set times, and include the floodlit feeds at 6:30 several days a week. Found out more at http://www.wwt.org.uk/visit/welney/whats-on/

Interested in history and archival research? Ely Library hosts a free workshop from 2 – 3:30 PM, tomorrow 8 January, called ‘Local history in libraries – what do we have?’. Although this workshop is focused on Ely, the public library also contains a remarkable collection of books concerning the Fens’ history.
