The trail features two NEW characters never before seen at Llanelli - Percy the Pelican and Camille the Curlew. They join past favourites including Katie the Kingfisher, Lottie the Otter, Fred the Frog, Flavia the Flamingo and Sam the Short-eared Owl.

Pick up your trail map when you arrive and head out to find each larger-than-life animal on the map. Find them all to answer the questions on your map and enter our prize draw to win a LEGO® goody bag!

The trail is included in admission or free for WWT members.

Summer wildlife highlights

Bejewelled dragonflies and damselflies of all colours zoom across the paths and ponds, and brilliant butterflies flutter from one beautiful wetland wildflower to another. On the glistening ponds and lagoons, this year's fledged birds continue to grow and make their way in life.

On warm days, lizards and slow worms bask in the sun, soaking up the heat and taking advantage of the buffet of insects that thrive at this time of year.

On the third Saturday of every month, we have our Walk with a Warden. Venture out onto the wetland nature reserve with friendly expert guidance on hand to help you spot some of the season's best highlights. Get insider wildlife tips and all of your questions answered. You'll learn how to look for the subtle signs and tracks you may never have noticed before and how to identify a broad range of different species. Upcoming walk information can be found here.

Flamingos

Brighten up any day with a visit to our fabulous flock of Caribbean flamingos.

A noisy crowd of hot coral pink, these statuesque birds really stand out! See if you can spot any adorable grey fluffy babies among the sea of legs and try to count the flock - we bet you can't!

Every Saturday and Sunday during the summer holidays, you can join one of our friendly volunteers for a fascinating flamingo talk at 1 pm.

Look out for majestic swan parents leading their growing cygnets, a flash of blue from a kingfisher, jewel-coloured dragonflies and damselflies, and if you're really lucky - maybe even a water vole!

Canoe hire is not included in admission and costs £9.95 per canoe. Children must be over five, and all children must be accompanied by an adult. Terms and conditions apply; full info here.

Wetlands don't just make a great place to visit, they are essential for life

They provide water, food or habitat for almost all species, including over a billion of us humans.

What's more, as effective carbon stores and natural flood defences, they are one of our best protectors against climate change and its disastrous effects.

And yet, wetlands are are disappearing three times faster than forests – 35% have disappeared since 1970.

So yes, by becoming a member you enjoy free visits 363 days a year to WWT Llanelli and our nine sister sites across the UK, plus a host of fantastic events, but best of all you are also helping protect and restore vital wetlands for generations to come. Isn't that amazing!?
