Eggs, Bugs & Rock n Roll
WWT London Wetland Centre takes a light-hearted look at mating and dating

 

Authored from The Wetlands Centre

White-facedWhistlingDuckc_JackBoothbyLove is in the air and nowhere more so than at London Wetland Centre.

Come along to discover how birds, bugs and mammals attract a mate, their dating habits and what sort of partner they make.

If you thought your partner was clingy wait until you hear about male Angler fish!  And the Beatles aren’t the only ones to make sweet music; discover how animals use melody to make themselves more attractive.

Our Eggs, Bugs & Rock n Roll show is a fun and fascinating look at how animals meet, mate and mind the kids. After all, birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it – so come along and find out how!

The show is suitable for all ages over 8 years and runs daily at 14.30 from Saturday 14 to Sunday 22 February, 2015. Tickets are free with paid admission to the Centre.

And it’s a good time of year to build a Love Nest. Come and decorate a bird box to give a good home to a young (feathered) couple or build a bird feeder from scrap, our very own Scrap Cheep Challenge!
