Ham Wall RSPB & Shapwick Heath – 11th Jun

13 members had a successful trip to the Somerset Levels on Saturday 11th. In total we logged 53 species, and with patient observation, had good views of the main ‘target’ species of Bittern, Marsh Harrier, Great White Egret and Hobby. Several Bitterns gave rather good fly-by views although grabbing a decent image wasn’t easy as most were siilhouetted against the sky. The first Hobbys were very distant, but later from the Meare Heath hide at Shapwick Heath we had a couple of excellent fly-bys. Picturee below – Bittern, Great Crested Grebe & ‘humbug’, Great White Egret, imm Grey Heron and a rather tatty Buzzard.
