A new photographic exhibition is running until the end of October at the Newport Wetlands Centre entitled - Photo Fantastic at the Wetlands Exhibition. The exhibition showcases the last decade in the reserves' history.

The reserve is home to a wide variety of birds and mammals and attracts many migrant visitors in winter and summer time. These include avocet, black-tailed godwit, shoveller and bittern as well as the resident otter, water shrew, brown hare and polecats.

Over the last ten years a whole range of new habitats have established themselves across the site - ranging from grazed pastures and hedgerows to ditches (known locally as reens) as well as saline lagoons and the largest area of reedbeds in South Wales.

The centre is open daily from 9am - 5pm so why pop along to the photo exhibition and then have a go at spotting the animals for yourselves!
