5th November 2017 – Somerset Levels

A lovely sunny day but quite cold for a trip to the Somerset Levels: we went first of all to Westhay Moor in the hope of bearded tits but no luck and not much else other than lots of shoveler and widgeon.

At Ham Wall we saw no marsh harriers (which I think is the first time ever) and really there was not much exciting about: only one brief view of a great white egret. The most attractive birds were shovelers, gadwall, lapwings and even mallards with their new coats. Right at the end I had my first view of a redwing this year.
