Drawn to Water: Winter

While other parts of the natural world hibernate, WWT Welney comes to life as over-wintering species move in for the colder months.

So grab your best bobble hat, pick up a Quentin Blake ‘Drawn to Water’ illustrated guide, and get exploring. There’s always something new to discover at this time of year.

Adventures worth leaving your nest for:

  • Wintry art activities for all ages and abilities, inspired by Quentin Blake's distinctive drawings.
  • Hone your photography skills surrounded by glistening frost and skies filled with beating wings.
  • Are you drawn to water, just like Quentin Blake? Enter your wetlands-inspired artwork into our competition to win a one-off framed print.
  • Had your fill of the cold? Pop into our café and warm up with a hot drink or tasty bite to eat.
