Autumn at London Wetland Centre

Autumn is a great time to see waders like black-tailed godwits, green sandpipers and greenshanks, while numbers of wintering ducks like shoveler, teal and wigeon rise. Disappearing foliage gives better views of the reserve's smaller birds like long-tailed tits and Cetti's warbler.
